About me

I was born in Mozambique 1972. Went to Portugal on 1978 due to the war. I have been a regular student, made college and later I finished my graduation and made a post graduation on Psychotherapy because of my love for people, helping and understanding them (also understanding myself and become a better person). I am the mother of two wonderful children (Vitória, 16 and Vítor André, 13) who are not living with me for financial reasons. I am divorced and I'm building my life on my own. I am a double cancer survival (uterus 2004 and breast 2015). Life has bringing me many wonderful and hard challenges and I face them with faith, hard work (includes the inner one) and proficiency. I am a dedicated and serious professional person. Creative and determined to solve objections. I´m touched for all humanitarian causes as well as animals protection. I love creating. In Portugal, the wages are very, very small, independently of the workers skills and education. The economical crisis promote it. As I am on my own, with the goal of working hard to offer my children the best they deserve and also myself, I am available to work everywhere on earth. I promote peace and I am a hard worker. I love challenges and I want to make my Life something Valid! And Happy!! All I need is a chance! Thank you!
