WHO AM I?

Hi there! I am Nana Soares, a proud Brazilian and Latin-American feminist and activist. I find it very difficult to explain my professional life - that's why I created this website. I've explored many things and studied a few others. I love this myriad of experiences and I am always willing to learn more. 

I've studied Journalism at the University of São Paulo (2014) and I hold a Masters in Gender and Development from the Institute of Development Studies/University of Sussex (UK- 2019). I want to fight inequalities and build a more equal world. Violence and Health are two of the topics I've worked on and researched the most. 

I've written, created, planned, and produced content for various projects and media outlets (still do!). Currently, I work as a research and communications officer at Sexuality Policy Watch (SPW). I also work as a researcher, consultant, analyst, translator and I've done some important advocacy - all focused on gender equality and its intersections with race and sexuality. And this is what I want to keep doing. 

I have for national and international companies and organizations, both in Portuguese and English. 

Some important facts about me: I think knowledge should be accessible and I really don't think people fit into boxes. 

 

Although you will see some important work on this website, there is a lot of expertise and skills that links cannot show you. Feel free to contact me to know more :)
