Where in Mozambique did you grow up?
I grew up in the capital of Mozambique, Maputo, with my mum who is a banker and my dad who is an accountant. I have one older brother and one younger sister.
What’s your most memorable childhood memory?
My favourite childhood memory is playing with my friends on the neighbourhood. I loved playing doll house, dancing to Brazilian songs and watching animation on television.
Who is your favourite music artist?
I like all sorts of music and artists from different countries around the world. My favourite music artist is Warren, he is from French Guiana and he is a Zouk R&B artist. I also like to listen to his girlfriend – Fanny J.
I enjoy their music so much that I started learning French, just so that I can understand their songs better!
“The Field Ready programme is changing the way we interpret education. It is more than a programme, it is an opportunity for the world.”
What would you like to be doing in 5 years time?
In five years time I would like to be doing very well in my job in automation and started taking on more challenging roles and responsibilities. I don’t know a lot of countries so I would like to travel. However, I don’t see myself working outside of the country for too long. I believe that I have a role to play on the country’s development so I would like to be a part on the community’s development.
What or who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is my fiancée. He is a very hard working guy. He has been studying electricity since the very young age and started working very early. I admire him because I watched him sacrifice himself for his goals and although he has faced many obstacles he got everything that he wanted. The secret was never giving up. He is not afraid of getting out of his comfort zone and is always finding ways to be good at his job.
What is your biggest achievement to date?
I’m proud that I finished my degree and was chosen to be a part of the Field Ready Programme.
Finally, what is your most hated food?
I hate kakana. It’s a very bitter sort of leaf curry made in Mozambique. They say it’s a very healthy plant, but I just find it inedible.
