I was born in 1987 in Porto, the city where I grew up and where I still live in. I was raised by my mother and by my grandmother, the two most important persons of my life.
I studied Counselorship and Translations Studies at ISCAP and started working at INESC TEC as a trainee in 2008. During that time, I collaborated with CESE secretariat. The following year, after obtaining my degree, I was hired by INESC to give support to CRACS and, in 2013, also to LIAAD.
I love travelling, listening to music, going to concerts, reading and being with my friends.
I consider myself a feminist and an animal and LGBTQI rights activist. Besides that, I am also a vegan and "mother" of six cats.
