Mini Bio
Sociologist contributing to social cohesion in the city of Braga.
What inspires me is the passion of being able to collaborate in an area that has a positive impact on people's lives and contribute to their social well-being and quality of life. Working in a social enterprise, such as the Human Power Hub - Social Innovation Center, has allowed me to empower and challenge social organizations and social entrepreneurs to design creative and innovative solutions to combat complex and emerging social problems, as well as find new, more efficient and effective social responses for the community where they live and achieving this goal is very rewarding on a personal and social impact level. I particularly enjoy working in this area because of the constant challenges and the stimulating and challenging environment, which constantly forces us to improve knowledge and acquire new skills to achieve my organization's goals. My professional experience in networking and coordinating social projects and my knowledge of the social reality allow me to develop my organization's mission and its positioning in local policies. Intervening in the area of social innovation through the encouragement of national and international partnerships has allowed the consolidation and scaling of my social enterprise based on the values of social justice and the creation of positive impact for communities. For the mission of my social enterprise, I must also highlight the importance of the work of encouraging and raising local awareness of social entrepreneurs and organizations and the impact investment that has been made by local authorities to enable the creation of innovative social and sustainable development projects implemented by very special people who, like us, want to change the world for the better.
