About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Settle down in Rio de Janeiro!

ABOUT ME

Well... I'm a 26yo social scientist [soon], [former] social business entrepreneur, and I really LOVE, to know people, cultures, realities, perspectives...
We are always connecting with people from other "worlds" to know better each other, and to get more and more close... I believe that businesses, NGOs, social projects and individuals must be together to create a better world. And so this is my life... I luv what I do!

PHILOSOPHY

I believe that people can be better by getting close to each other. We live in a very material world and sometimes we forget that a lot of people still living out of conditions and/or having no opportunities.
I´d never had some of them... The english for example, that I´ve learnd at home, with no teatcher, school or enything else... all by myself. Arts... communications and many other skills...
"Just wish, and you gonna get everything in your life!"

Music, Movies & Books

I admit: Coldplay and Beyoncé! Then Frank Sinatra, Billie Holliday, Etta James, but also Jpsephyne Baker. And some old school songs do dance all night long with friends.

I luv reading technical books that refers to communications, arts, design and social business.

Actually I'm reading some studies about the job of my dear, loved and idol Andy Warhol.

I luv cinema, and I do prefer to watch serious movies which talks about people and relations... if from hollywood, I do prefer musicals and war or judgement stories.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

First ever hand over at Lapa, in my first travel to Rio de Janeiro, that ended up at the beach with the most beautiful sunrise my mind can recall.

Teach, Learn, Share

People should try to find themselves, inside of their essence... And it's not so hard to do. But sometimes, the only way for to run out of your world is exchanging. I used to say that sometimes my problems sounds bigger than other´s problems... But I only know myself. And sometimes, it seems to be strange to see that I simply get myself out of my own focus. It means that I keep tryin to discover who I am, and where I´m goin to.
The life, if just a bridge, between your future, and your present. Your past is your ground, but your feets just can get comfortable, if you walk well.
Take a look inside yourself, and find the real person that is right there. You'll see that, it will take a lil long, but your accomplishes in the end... will be absolutely pleasurable.
I had many experiences with several people, and recently I discovered that those who are lovely, fill me with energy, and compassion, and happiness... and many other nice things... But specially the hardest ones [to handle], also teaches me more and more, all the time. Because when you have to learn to live with someone, everything changes.
I have lots of good memories of my past to tell... then I remember that my past is closer to myself than I think... and that I have my peculiar way to get along with myself, and with the world around me.
In the end... Do everything you want, but above all ...
Try to, and effectively be: happy.
