My name is Catarina, I am 31 years and I am from Porto, in Portugal.
I've studied Psychology and I worked for 5 years in a foster care for neglected boys who were suffering from abuse in their families.
After this, I decied that I wanted to try a new environment, so I began my career in HR area in 2018. I became a HR Manager and nowadays I am the responsible for the Department of Recruitment and Selection of a prestigious worldwide consultancy.
Eventhough the stability that this job gives to me, I've begun to feel unhappy and empty. The truth is I would like to be more useful and to make the difference in someone's life.
Last year, I've found yoga, meditation and I've become vegetarian. I was trying to find new alternative ways to balance my professional life and I think I got it. However, I feel that I need time and an experience abroad, out of my confort zone to discover the real Catarina and to understand which course I want to give to my life.

More details about your skills
I love children, since I worked with children and teenagers for 5 years. While I was studying at the University, in paralell, I did some housecleaning in a friend's hostel during weekends.
I love nature and animals.
At my home I am the one who cook, since this is something really therapeutic for me.
I am also havinf yoga classes, so I can become a certified teacher.
More details about my language interests
I'd like to learn french and I am able to teach portuguese and english.
What else ...
Well, I believe in the power of your energy; law of attraction and karma.
I am a spiritual person and I am a Ganesh and Shiva follower. I like to meditate in the morning, at 6am and then do my crossfit workout after. Yes, I need this kind of balance in my life! :)
I love to meet new people, but also to keep my oldest friendships. However, being alone, sometimes, it's something that I need too.
January and February are the worst months for me and in the future, I'd like to live abroad in a place where temperatures are higher. I prefer hot weather rather than the cold one.
I love to sing, everthough I don't do it a lot of times.
