I am from Portugal, female, in my 40’s, and with a good experience in travelling abroad. Speak and understand 5 languages, but also can sometimes understand and make myself understood in other languages. Its fun.
My experience is life. Professionally speaking, I am a Paper Conservator, working nowadays as a teacher at Polytechnic Institute of Tomar, center of Portugal. I deal with students from 17 years old to 70 years old, trying to help them with Preservation, Conservation, and Restoration of any Object/Heritage containing paper, parchment, leather, wood, metal, tortoise shell, bone, feathers, embroidery, and even painting materials. But I am also open to learn, all the time! I have to be a teacher, a consultant, a researcher, a listener, a laboratory head/technician/secretary/cleaning lady, and a psychologist too. Pretty confusing, sometimes.
I can help a Mentee anywhere in the world regarding its own personal development as a human being, seeing things in another perspective, or as simply as by having a language training conversation. That way everything (personally and professionally) will come accordingly, positively, and naturally in its life. Also I can help regarding his/hers own life and professional experiences, as I have a pretty knowledge about what is “to fall and to rise” again. It is a question of “mind change”, or change the way we see things.
Also, if you wish yo visit Portugal, I can help with any arrangements you need! Portugal it is one of the most old countries in the world, independent since 1139 A.D.
Wish you the best and hope you like my mentorship!
