Hey there!

I’m Ana Isabel Carvalho, but my family, friends and associates call me Balolas. I’m a journalist based in Lisboa and co-founder of Umazed.com, which is a social platform for getting insights, setting goals, self-improvement, and self-awareness.

It was very early that I realized that my mission is to tell stories. Real stories, which clarify the truth of the human condition. After graduating in Communication Sciences with a specialization in Journalism from the University of Porto, I decided to focus on humanistic journalism, with a special emphasis on international relations, human rights, activism, environment and alternative lifestyles. Currently finishing my Master's in International Relations at the University of Lisbon, I’m studying the international effort to stop indigenous exploitation in South America, mostly in Brazil and Peru. I’m a fluent English speaker and writer, but I also speak Italian, Spanish and some Crioulo. I’m a journalist at the daily newspaper Jornal i and the weekly Semanário SOL, writing about Society and Traveling. It was at Jornal i that I created the weekly articles “Generation i", dedicated to the study of the Millennial generation in Portugal.

I’ve also written a daily report for the printed and online edition of Jornal i about my Balkan’s trip with a photojournalist which I’ve also published on my website:www.expedicaob.com

I’m also a writer for the international web Literature Magazine “Sonder Minds”.
