Ada daCosta

Queens, New York City

Communications professional seeking connections and a permanent position in a creative, community-oriented work atmosphere (ideally focused on improving a societal disparity).

I have substantial experience in analysis and organizational improvement. I am also focused on leveraging social action to address human rights issues through media advocacy.

I constantly ask myself during the process of monitoring a project and its intended outcomes, “ Is this structure working? Is the message being expressed clearly?” – If it is not, then I take the initiative to examine the method at play and fill in the missing pieces.

I am an extrovert, optimist, and seeker of meaning.

Professionally, I am interested in harnessing partnerships across platforms because I believe the power to enhance a mission can truly be found in our ability to connect with each other on common ground.

EXPERTIS:Language Enthusiast: Fluent Portuguese; Conversational Spanish; and Beginner Serbian and Arabic.
