A feminist, only 32 years old, she has accumulated experiences and experiences that she believes are not only relevant to her "professional career" and to her "curriculum", as many people consider, but which have changed her whole person, woman and citizen, if she thinks she is an expert, she tries to be always attentive in order not to reproduce positions of power with this work, she feels that she still has much to unlearn and deconstruct as a woman, to these women their dignity and the understanding that they are people endowed with rights and potential.

"My struggle is for something basic, so that these women are respected as much as I am, so that they can have the same rights as I have. I make my utopias my daily work. "(Priscilla Dias).
