Raised in the beautiful city of Aveiro in Portugal, I moved back to my birth country – Canada – at the age of 17. I have since attained an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, from Ryerson University and am now taking the Ontario graduate certificate in Forensic Practice, from Humber College, also in Canada. Currently, I am also a co-founder and board member for StArt YPA (Start Youth Presenting Art) festival – a Scarborough-based youth-driven initiative focused on providing a platform for youth to develop their artistic skills and bridge the gap between young people and their communities.

Since moving back to Canada, I have also started my own little family of three – myself, my husband and our beautiful daughter. I feel I am quite lucky for having them by my side and for having experienced such a diverse life.

My love affair with writing has had different stages, from the more creative pieces (i.e. poems, short stories) in my teen years, to a hiatus stage, on to the more academic stage I find myself in at the moment. These are all reflective of the many life changes I have experienced (i.e. being an event assistant, psychology student, mother, store owner, etc.), and my hubs will likely reflect this as well.

As you will see, I like to write about arts, social topics of all kinds, shapes and figures, and also interesting, random topics. If I had to single out one thing that I love most about writing I would say it is the learning process behind every piece composed. Does not matter the size, 500 or 5000 words, every single piece requires some learning curve that I seem to be addicted to.

In the near future, I aspire to further my education in Psychology through graduate studies. For the time being, I will continue contributing to HubPages with articles about a variety of topics that I encounter and explore along the way.
