What I Do?

I work in IT segment since 2011 and have been in Lenovo for more than two years. My experience here is related to Commercial Marketing activities, such as coordination of Channel and Relational 360o campaigns (off & online initiatives) and events. I also have the important role of controlling the SMB/REL alliances’ projects to provide 100% synergy and strategy’s delivered to the main partners. The main projects in SMB are: Call center, Negotiators, Mundo Lenovo and Channel University; for Relational, it’s the Thinkers’ Club. Everyday, I’m connected to the agencies and partners to promote the efficient integration needed to reach the best results for the company.

Places I’ve Gone?

I love travelling and visiting new places around the world. When I was 15, I went with my family to an Eurotrip and we visited the main cities in Europe such as: Lisbon (Portugal), Rome (Italy), Milan (Italy), London (England) and Paris (France). It was a great experience and the first time I've travelled abroad. In the following year, 2008, I went to live in Munich (Germany) for a couple of months and I had the opportunity to visit some other cities around it.

This year, fortunately, I had the opportunity to travel around Brazil and get to know different beaches in the North-east region. I visited Recife and Fortaleza and both cities are well known as one of the most beautiful places in Brazil. Almost every year I spend Carnival (February or March) in Rio de Janeiro, it’s my favorite time of the year! Earlier this year I also visited Athens and Santorini (Greece) and I can vouch that Santorini is the most beautiful place ever! I admired its natural beauty.

My Best Day @ Lenovo?

All my days at Lenovo are great. I have a great team and my colleagues have became special during the (almost) 3 years here. If I need to choose one, I would choose the day I was told I would attend One Young World representing Lenovo. It is the biggest opportunity in my career so far and I am planning to give my best in it, it will be the best experience ever.

Why I am excited to be a OYW Delegate?

I am excited because it’s a great opportunity for me to learn and get to know new people, new subjects and also share my experience and my knowledge. I can’t wait to attend the lectures and above all, represent my country and Lenovo the best way I can.

My Passions?

My passion #1 is travelling. I love visiting new places even if they are near my house. It’s always a great way to unwind. There are different kinds of trips and all of them inspire me! Even if it’s with friends just for fun, or to relax, to work. It’s always valid and great.

Fun Facts?

  1. Some people say I am a funny person and I don’t even notice it (just sometimes).
  2. At first I am the shy kind of person, but after that stage, I am very extroverted and funny! I love making new friends and getting to know new people and their life experiences.
  3. I get easily addicted to digital trends! For example: when “selfies” became famous all I could think about was taking and posting new selfies everyday. It always happens to me!
