About Me

I work in Cidade de Deus, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for 42 years. I am a cultural producer, poet and composer. I like dealing with people. I have two books published. I decided to change, today I'm stronger. I know that my past was of fundamental importance in the construction of my history. I keep studying and facing obstacles, which makes me find new ways of dealing with a life. I am the founder of a community newspaper with 4,000 copies for more than 52,000 inhabitants. Our newspaper is hosted without the ISUU website, which increases its visibility.

My Vision

Person of value is a focus of light. Show this light and transform lives. Lights illuminate the future.
