Bachelor of Laws, LLB (Hons)
I am a first-generation Canadian, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario with close ties to my Portuguese heritage and community.
For university, I moved to the United Kingdom to pursue a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from The City Law School, City University of London where I was a mentor for the LLB Mentoring Scheme. After graduating, completing the Federation of Law Societies of Canada National Committee on Accreditation exams and working in the legal field for six years, I decided to change my career path. Since then, I have gained experience in marketing, digital content & website creation, entrepreneurship, business-to-business relations, and customer success. I have also earned multiple licenses and certifications through online learning platforms. I believe that it is important to always expand your knowledge!
I am passionate about advocacy, education, and building better communities. Through travelling the world, spending more time outdoors and in the farmlands of Portugal, my love for nature grew but so did my concern for the environment. I have been passionate about climate change ever since learning about it as a little kid in grade school so I am incredibly excited to make impactful positive contributions to climate solutions and help to reach our Net-Zero goal!
