Susana Damasceno

When I was 10 years old I wrote a poem about peace and went to read it at my father’s company Christmas party. It’s not surprising then that I founded AIDGLOBAL! Today I know that peace can only be achieved through quality education and for that it is essential to read, listen and tell stories.

I feel fulfilled in my work, because I learn a lot and I have the privilege of being accompanied by people who believe like me that change happens through education. And despite the complex challenges I have to face as an executive of this NGDO, which is in charge of managing a non-profit organization, the balance is positive, filled with a huge feeling of gratitude!

When work lets me fly, I hug my son ever more, my friends, my cat, my books, my plants and I dance until I no longer have the strength to embrace.”
