About Me

I am a lawyer living in the south of Brazil. I am passionate about human rights, social justice and sustainable development.

Women's rights are one of my big interests, as well as LGBTQA issues and racial inequality. I've personally experienced gender related violence and biases, have worked with victims of violence and have witnessed many kinds of discrimination. As a lawyer, I'm interested in topics related to justice, and I'm currently focusing on the rights of people deprived of freedom. I'm developing a project that will offer opportunities of personal development, education and professional experience for girls in juvenile centers.

I'm constantly learning to acknowledge my privileges and listen to people's stories, I'd like to help them have their voices heard instead of just speaking for them.

My Vision

Society can only thrive if no one is left behind.

Needs

Ideas to help at risk girls in their journey to a prosper and peaceful future. Ideas for digital/technology inclusiveness activities.

Abilities

I'm a specialist in international law, researcher in humanitarian aid and human rights.
