What was the most curious thing you have seen until today?
The trips I’ve been on, made me see new realities, new cities, new ways of living. The trip that undoubtably sparked my senses the most was when I went to India a few years back.
How would you like to see the world in 10 years?
I would like people to understand that life isn’t endless, which means it should be lived to the fullest while valuing what makes us happy. Approaching life focused on the positive feelings means that people must be more cooperative, more generous and conscious of their role in the universe.
A trait you enjoy in other people?
People that are comfortable in their own skin. People that recognize their qualities and develop their skills in a healthy way. And ultimately people that accept others and their differences peacefully, and by such understanding the world is a much richer place.
A book that inspires you…
Books inspire me because they tell stories, they give me access to different approaches and realities. Usually i like novels and right now I am discovering Jeffrey Eugenides in the book “The marriage plot”. At the same time, and because I like life stories and am a personal fan of the Lady of crime, I am Reading, once again, Agatha Christie’s biography.
A place that makes you happy?
My family and friends make me happy. The place we are in comes in second place – if I had to choose I’d pick the Southern area of Portugal, the end of a hot and sunny day, while laughing and having a good conversation.
