I work in the field of design for social impact. I combine my experience with human-centred design and audio-visual production to promote a world with more social justice. Nowadays, I am studying Strategic Design at TU Delft where I am focused on design for policymaking and public sector innovation.
In 2015 I founded the Older Child Adoption Project (Projeto Adoção Tardia), an independent initiative to raise awareness about children's adoption in Brazil through video productions. The Project also co-creates new practices with adoption support groups and shelter home institutions to improve the experience of sheltered children and adolescents.
The success of public policies and services shaped my life opportunities; for instance, it guaranteed me a substitute family and quality free education. For this reason, I am committed to helping ensure that policies and government services regenerate social inequalities and safeguard human rights in Brazil and Latin America.
