I graduated in Social Service within my degree in Law and was a trainee at the Hospital Center of Porto which also verified my impression of the importance of social work in health.
As a social worker my aim is to promote social, physical and psychological well-being. This also makes me aware of the weaknesses at a personal housing level of the people of Porto. My focus is on observing the exclusion of elders and proactive actions for an active and healthy ageing. I am attentive to expressions of social issues, public social policies, private and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
