Movement Strategy and Governance Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation
Hi! I'm Brazilian and I've been involved with Wikimedia as a volunteer since 2015; first editing Wikipedia in Spanish (I lived in Madrid from 2008-2016) and since 2019 (I moved to Lisbon in 2016) editing Wikipedia in Portuguese. Sometimes I also contribute to Wikidata and Commons. Back in 2015 I started contributing thanks to an editathon organized by Patricia Horrillo from Wikiesfera at the MediaLab Prado in Madrid; this experience gave me a very special sense of community power, which I later had the chance to try again with some peers in Lisbon, when in May 2019 we cofounded an informal user group (group of volunteer editors) called Wiki Editoras Lx. It has been an amazing learning journey since then! Read more about my volunteering at my volunteer userpage; I will use my former account for all my volunteer work on the wikis.
Random fun facts about me: I firmly belive that you're what your community is. I'm interested/or involved with Culture, Arts, Gastronomy, Languages, Cinema, Commons, Communication. And Feminism.
In Oct.2021 I started working for the Wikimedia Foundation to advance Movement Strategy and Governance implementation by providing support and guidance to Wikimedia volunteers and affiliates. I'm excited and honoured for the opportunity and ready for the challenge.
