What I like the most about the favela is the friendships you build with people. They end up being the family you choose for yourself.

HIGHLIGHTS

Marielle Franco is a reference person that I look up to. I had the opportunity to work with her and she is a person who supported me a lot and who came from a social reality like mine.

Being a leader for me means making a difference in the lives of many black favela girls and favela dwellers, who grew up with a lot of scourges of decriminalization, prejudice, neglect and pain.
