Hey there!

I’m Ana Isabel Carvalho, but my family, friends and associates call me Balolas.

I’m a journalist, writer, and the Social Media Director and cofounder of, which is a social platform for getting insights, setting goals, self-improvement, and self-awareness.

I studied Journalism at Porto University, in Portugal. I speak English, Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian.

I started working as a journalist in my freshmen year.

In 2014, for seven months, I was the director of a community radio in Cape Verde called “Radio Voz de Bubidsta.” In addition, I was the Bloomberg correspondent in Cape Verde, while concurrently writing blogs for several websites as a freelancer. I majored in International Relations, with a special emphasis, and I have a passion for Human Rights, Feminism, and Environmental Issues.

Now recently, I’ve created an international news outlet page know as Ponto de Fusao, and I’ve served as the Social Media Marketing Manager at MUVI Lisboa, which is an international music film festival.

I’m a critical thinker with an adventures spirit. I’m extremely adaptive to situations, and have an incredible desire to add value to people’s lives as a journalist and high performance individual.
