Born in Lisbon in 1981, half Indian, half Portuguese (from the Alentejo). Sun in Libra, ascending and moon in Aries. The golden autumn heat.
My life changed in November 2012 with the birth of my son Guilherme. The fire that came from the cold (a frozen embryo, after 4 years of infertility), in a birth with obstetric violence and a troubled history of breastfeeding. In August 2016, my daughter Beatriz arrived, in an empowering birth. The tenderness that came by surprise, the breeze that soothes the heat. My travel companion is David, in a love blessed by Saint António since 2000.
I graduated in management and worked in consultancy. With a PhD in Marketing (ISCTE-IUL), I developed scientific research focusing on materialism and its impact on the environment. I explored the threat to identity, which results in wasted resources, when someone receives a gift that they don’t identify with. I was a university professor, and presented my studies at the best international conferences. But I felt incomplete!
Transposing the portal to motherhood represented a new life and the beginning of another journey. A new woman emerged in me with each birth, making me wake up to what is most sacred: the birth of a new life.
