Combining my experience with human-centred design and audio-visual production, I work to promote a world with more social justice. Nowadays, I am studying Strategic Design at TU Delft and conducting research on design for policymaking and public sector innovation.
In 2015, I founded "Adoção Tardia" (Older Child Adoption), an initiative to change the discourse about adoption and how foster children are perceived in Brazil. We produce content primarily for adoption candidates, aiming to increase the number of successful older child adoptions. We also co-create new practices with adoption support groups and shelter home institutions to improve the experience and opportunities of children and adolescents that are placed in the foster care system.
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.
