I am an indeendnet journalist from Brazil who focuses on Development and social issues. I have worked as an investigative reporter for the influential political magazine Caros Amigos, as a correspondent for US newscast Free Speech Radio News and for the UK agency Global Radio News.
My first book, Plantados no chao (Planted in the earth) came out in Brazil in June 2007. It exposes political assassinations in Brazil in recent years. I was awarded two national prizes for her investigative work and a scholarship from the British Council to study for a masters degree in London. Right now I am writing my second book, about a pro-democracy newspaper during the military dictatorship in Brazil, and freelancing for national and international media.
