Rita Dias | Junior Achievement

My name is Rita Dias, I am a Portuguese woman who was born in Coimbra. I studied Management, but it was the Social Entrepreneurship that woke me up. I studied Political Science, but it was through Music and Poetry that I intervened in society. I am new, but I have dreams that gave for many lives. I am a patchwork at the service of others, the mission of others, the destiny of everyone and everything in common. And this is how I allow myself to be a mentor to Impact Hub projects, in the certainty that, at the end of the journey, the greatest apprentice will have been me.
