Journalist and researcher in Londres, Reino Unido
I´m a journalist with plenty of experience in big coverages, producing reports/programs and editing. Recently, I have started studying the relationship between internet and terrorism, thereby, I developed a digital platform to help increase the visibility of institutions that use words to tackle extremism/radicalisation.
Besides helping these institutions, Words Heal the World is also a platform that builds bridges between academia and the people. There it is possible to read stories produced and written by students from Brazil and the UK. My creativity and detemination motivate me to inspire other people to make a difference in our world.
With more than ten years of experience in the newsroom, I have been able to learn about the power of communication, and how it can be used to change people´s lives. This will to help people always guided my work at Globo TV: I produced and edited many stories about the problems of the Brazilian health system, human trafficking, environmental disasters.
Recently, I contributed as a volunteer with UNIDO and the Free Yezidi Foundation. I have also published an academic article at the online magazine, Malala, from USP (a reputed Brazilian university). The article is entitled: "The violence against Yezidi women: The Islamic State’s sexual slavery system".
Currently, I am doing Masters on International Relations and Security, and, as my creativity never stops, I am working on a short documentary and on a social media campaign to help organizations founded by mothers who lost theirs sons due to radicalization.
Journalism is my mission and I am willing to use the words to turn our world a better place to live!
