What an incredible week. From March 9 to 13 I was in Washington DC for the Filmapalooza Film Festival with my short “Samanta: Má Ou Santa”, in representation of Portugal, among almost 100 awarded short films from all over the world. Not only this was an amazing opportunity to connect with passionate filmmakers from all around the globe, but I also got nominated for BEST ACTRESS in this contest. What a feeling!
Plus, our film was also nominated for BEST SONG.
Grateful for this recognition, and for this incredible opportunity.

I had the privilege of being invited by the Secretary of State for Inclusion, Ana Sofia Antunes, to be one of the speakers at the session “A Conversation With Women Who Inspired Us”, where I was able to share my experience, opinions and my life commitment with regard to the ways in which I seek to actively contribute to building a more inclusive society.
Today I had the pleasure of being a speaker at the World Hearing Day Event promoted by the OUVIR Association, where I shared my hearing loss experience, my journey as an actress and producer, my struggle for a more inclusive cinema, and my project Listen To My Lips.
Thank you OUVIR Association for the invitation, and congratulations on the initiative.
