I have been living in Luxembourg since January 2002. I arrived in Luxembourg together with the Euro!
My husband’s work. He was transferred here from Spain for a 2 years assignment.
I have a bachelor in Business Administration (4years) obtained in Brazil and a Masters Degree in Learning and Development in Multicultural and Multilingual environments from the University of Luxembourg.
I work for The House of Training - ATTF (Financial Technology transfer agency) Pillar - We empower professionals from the finance sector of the partner countries to construct a performing banking system and fight frauds and money laundering.
In parallel, I am a trainer at OLAI, Office Luxembourgeois d’Accueil et Intégration ( Luxembourg Reception and Integration Agency) - , in the framework of the welcome and integration contract. I give the Citizenship course which has the purpose of giving an overview of the Luxemburgish history, share the local traditions, discuss about intercultural competence and how to better integrate on a multicultural and multilingual society. I am also a volunteer for the HubDot a women networking through story telling, where I work as a connector during their inspiring events. I am also part of the committee who organizes the festival du film brésilien, a film festival with the ambition of showing the Brazilian film industry and its professionals. But my most important project is my family. I am married to a fantastic man I am mother of two awesome boys aged 16 and 17.
Easy, sure and challenging.
The multiculturality of its population.
Saudade – which is a very specific word to express that we miss someone or a place.
I am a natural ambassador. It is in my DNA to connect people, to open doors, to build bridges, to help empowerment and to share. As I am a strong believer in the power of sharing, it was just natural for me to do it in a more structured way. I am thankful to Just arrived to have invited me to join this amazing group of generous people.
