Portraying and implementing new practices

I have the capability of creating tangible artifacts (through the use of low and high fidelity prototypes) that engage physically and emotionally and have the potential in bringing stakeholders (citizens, policy-makers, legislators, social group leaders) to a fruitful discussion.

Storytelling

Sense of Belonging Podcast

An adoptive family identity starts by creating a sense of belonging, the child learns to belong to the family, and the family members learn to belong to the child. On Sense of Belonging Sessions, Simone Uriartt from Adoção Tardia (Older Child Adoption Project) speaks to families that have adopted, child development experts and professionals from the child protection system. Let’s take a moment to listen to other families stories and reflect on what means being an adoptive parent and how you can help your children build their identity.
