Understanding how to preserve cultural and natural heritage goes far beyond academic knowledge.

It means understanding, above all, that it underpins the construction of contemporary society. It has an extraordinary impact on the question of who we are, where we come from and where we are going.

Cultural heritage plays a key role in preserving a society’s identity, memory and history. It has never been more important to protect the power of culture in transforming societies.

It encompasses a wide range of tangible and intangible assets, including monuments, artifacts, traditions, cultural practices, artistic expressions, or even language. Heritage is the living testimony of human achievements over centuries of history, reflecting the beliefs, values and achievements of past, present and future communities.

Telling and writing stories, that’s how I remember myself being all my life. I have a degree in Tourism Management and a Master’s degree in Cultural Heritage. This passion led me to create a small company of carefully planned tourist activities centered on the history of Lisbon and the often forgotten and underestimated history of women.

As well as walking tours of the city, I work as a content consultant in the development and production of tourist itinerary content for the Walkbox app. I write opinion articles for a newspaper in Madeira and another in Barcelos. Driven by values, I volunteer for an association where I take on the role of content creator and manager.
