My love for design started more than 10 years ago. I could say that I have spent half my life passionate about everything that the technological world has to offer, but I would be lying. I didn't even know at that time everything that a computer could bring me when it came to discovering what I really wanted to do.

At that time, a couple of friends began to open blogs on Blogspot to tell their daily lives, their jokes, or their love affairs, and since I couldn't miss it, I joined that youth revolution that was around Portugal (like the TikTok at the time). When I decided to open my first blog, back in 2008, I wrote about the same things as my friends, however, writing did not excite me (I admit it, I don't write like Shakespeare). What it really did excited me was to change the design of my blog every day. I started by changing the color of an image, or making it black and white, until I ventured to change the entire design.

When the formatting of the Blogspot templates outgrew me, I decided to switch to Blogs do Sapo (again, a boom in Portugal) where I could change all the CSS and HTML of the page, so at that moment I also started to want to innovate with the design tools that I used. My amazing friend called Photoshop, which gave me headaches every time it was closed without saving, was undoubtedly the program that began to mark and define my career as a designer. To this day, I still keep one of those blogs which makes me a little embarrassed, but you can check it out here.

Although my self-training began with blogs, I don't owe everything to them, but to the celebrity websites I built. I set up my websites, designed them, changed them, laid them out and so on 100 times. I lasted 2 years with that website, uploading content daily, and changing the design daily as well.

When I started high school, I put aside all my artistic abilities to try to focus on the scientific studies that I had gotten into. Serious mistake. In the end, I ended up moving to Madrid and doing the artistic baccalaureate that allowed me to access the Integral Design and Image Management degree. In it, I touched various branches of design, such as interior design, graphic design, editorial design, product design, and even some architecture and marketing stuff.

In 2017, I started working as a designer in a craft company during the summer so that I could save money to go on Erasmus to Germany. The following year, while living in Mexico, I focused on something different from what I had worked on, and I started doing renders and interior design in Plug.In Studio. A few months after my return from Mexico, I worked for the first time as a UX/UI designer, what I previously did as a hobby, became my profession, which I dedicate myself to today.

I keep learning every day with what I'm doing, and more and more, I'm falling in love with what the world of design can offer. I am still that girl who is passionate about what is new, and about this wonderful profession that is the creation of original pieces capable that can impact and change the world.
