About Me: 

I usually have a hard time when I try to write about myself. People see me in ways, I sometimes don't even agree. But in short, I'm a dreamer who always wants the best and looks for the best, no matter how bad things seem to be.
Don't get me wrong, I'm well aware of the reality around me. I just don't see the point in complaining about the world that surrounds us, without looking forward and actually doing something to change what needs to be changed, trying to see where our actions can lead us in a positive way. This way of thinking, is what guides me in my work and my life.

I live in Brasilia, where I'm still a undergrad student in Anthropology. For the past two year I've been working in researches connected with gender and health. Transexuality and gender identity related issues are a big curiosity of mine, but my main work is related to Medicines, its circulation inside the Brazilian Public Health Care and its usage by the population.

My Passions: 
Reading, traveling, studying other cultures
My Challenges: 
Do my best
My Vision for the Future: 
A world were people respect each other
My Languages: 
Portuguese, English, French
