On the societal side I am involved in several projects: The Economy of Francesco , which is an international project and a call from the Pope to Economists, entrepreneurs & changemakers to give a new soul to the Economy, “Abraçar a Paz” (inSoul), a national social responsible project, which aims to bring happiness and peace to people and; “Digital School” (IPAM & Universidade Europeia) that is an Iberian social project, with the aim to decrease the digital gap in schools, by educating professors with digital skills, as well as, support schools and families with digital solutions and skills.

I was a ballet dancer and nowadays dance is one of my passions, along with music. I used to sing gospel in the Saint Dominic”s Gospel Choir.

I lived in the UK and Mozambique, I chose however to live in Portugal, since I feel very happy and comfortable in this country.

In my free time, I practice sports, read, and travel.

You may ask yourself – how does she do it? With love, focus and with teamwork. Of course, not all projects are active simultaneously. So, I have the time, flexibility, and efficiency to focus my energy when and where is needed.

Success comes from hard work and purpose.
