TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF...
I work at The Daffodil as a Food & Beverage Assistant. I started here in June 2021 with my husband Vinicius, who is also a Food & Beverage Assistant. We have been in the UK since 2020, arriving in the middle of the pandemic.Before The Daffodil, we worked in a warehouse and delivering food. In our spare time we worked doing photoshoots. Vinicius is the photographer and I did the hair and makeup. We like to work together in everything we do!
DESCRIBE YOUR MINDSET WHEN IT COMES TO WORK? WHAT HELPS YOU REMAIN POSITIVE?
Leaving our country behind to start a new life involves so many things. I left behind, not just my family and friends, but a career. In Brazil I had a pharmacist post graduate degree and my own beauty salon. I don’t like to think as I was giving up things, I was just looking new goals in life.
HOW DO YOU GET THE MOST OUT OF THE LIFE YOU ARE LIVING?
I like challenges, I like to focus in the good part of everything, I like to dance when no one is watching and celebrate when I achieve something, no matter how small it is.
DESCRIBE AN IDEAL DAY AT WORK THAT SUPPORTS A HEALTHY WORK-LIFE BALANCE?
I know that I own my thoughts so I try to keep then always positive. I believe that I don’t have control over other people’s actions, just over my own, so I’ll try to always the best that a I can be. For me, others being happy around me, I like to call a side effect of this.
