About me:

She spreads Jazz, blues and soul music; adores skating (was the staff of the Ice Rink Ice Palace in Madrid); and loves cooking (made a one year course of the INEM). She has a project which promote to reuse objects and plant on them: Crowd-Recycling. She is doing it in the city of Évora, mainly in the School Manuel Ferreira Patricio with kids which are fantastic and excluded of the society. If you like it, say it on facebook (thanks si much). Join us, reuse objetcs is an historical issue.
