What is something you are passionate about outside of work?
Being with my family.
What is a quote that inspires you?
“We always arrive at the place where we are expected” – Jose Saramago in Viagem do Elefante. (“The elephants journey”).
What is your favorite book and why?
That is a difficult one but I am naming:
Memorial do Convento/Jose Saramago. It takes me to places I know, at a time when discoveries energized society in Lisbon. Almost feels that you are part of the construction of the convent that still exists today. The characters and relation/romance of Blimunda and Baltasar and their connection with the moon and sun . And among all the hard descriptions it is comic because it portrays the nobility and bourgeoisie and their private life that time.
What is your favorite place to travel and why?
Far from the confusion. Spaces in nature and cities with history.
Name one interesting fact about you.
Ability to empathize with people and to put myself in the other’s place.
