OTHER PROJECTS

Besides music and video related projects, I have another big passion, which is writing. I am also very engaged in feminist causes and have worked actively, creating platforms and networks to help women become protagonists of their history. I also have an extensive journalistic translator career.

CO-AUTHOR OF COLETÂNEA REEDIFICAÇÕES

Released in November, 2019

The book is a compilation of stories written by 32 Brazilian women about how they had to overcome life adversities and reinvent themselves to go on. It's originally written in Brazilian Portuguese (my mother language), organized by Farah Serra and published by Fafalag Editor. Besides being an author, I produced the videos for the successful crowdfunding campaign that made the book possible. The project aims at sustainability so physical books are printed only on demand. Real-time is possible through e-book or pdf version.

CO-FOUNDER OF THE PORTAL MÃES MUNDO AFORA

Since April 3, 2019

Collaborative platform and information network produced by Brazilian mothers who live in different parts of the world. I founded Mães Mundo Afora together with Carol Medeiros (Netherlands) and Carolina Rodrigues (Belgium)  as a portal to support Brazilian expat mothers, giving them the opportunity to create a network, develop entrepreneurship and female empowerment through the chance of sharing stories, exchanging information and being protagonists of their history. I am in charge of communication and social media management. Our Instagram has a micro-influencer status with over 10K followers.

THIS IS FINLAND: THINGS YOU SHOULD AND SHOULDN'T KNOW

Since June, 2014

This is Finland is a country-branding website produced by the Finnish Promotion Board at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. I've been working actively as an outsourced journalistic translator for the Portuguese page. The website is translated into nine languages. I have translated over a thousand articles since 2014 doing a careful job of cultural interpretation to each one. For the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland I have also translated press releases, official bidding documents, and official content.

BRASILEIRAS PELO MUNDO

From October 2014 to September 2019

Brasileiras pelo Mundo is a Brazilian portal of expat women with over 30 thousand followers. I had a column about life in Finland and also worked as a proofreader and SEO editor.
This project opened many doors to my journalistic career and I am very glad for having taken part in it.
