Criei empatia com a questão dos refugiados desde que começou a ser debatida de forma fervorosa em Portugal, tanto nos media, como nas redes sociais.

SPEAK has given me the chance to collaborate and learn from kind people who have shared their ways, their experiences, their awesome food, and their passion for understanding other’s culture.
