What or who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is my father. He lost his job in 1998 because of the civil war in Mozambique. At this time, my mother was unemployed. He advised my mother to take a course she would love to sustain us, and she did. She became a teacher and supported us. My father always worried about our education. He impressed me because he was the first teacher of his children. We were all obliged to start at school after learning basic calculus and read small texts.
What is your biggest achievement to date?
I’m proud to have studied Chemical Engineering and confident in speaking English.
