Who were you your tutors?

Simon Glaze, Adam Swift, Wyn Grant, Marcus Miller, Ben Clift, among others

Do you have any fond memories?

Several! From the societies and Students’ Union, to the musical and cultural events in the Arts Centre, through to the welcoming staff, of which I recall with particular happiness a long discussion about Greece with Marcus Miller and the meetings with my dissertation supervisor.

Where did you live while you were at Warwick?

In first year, I lived in Westwood. Thereafter, I lived in Leamington!

Were you a member of any societies?

Predominantly, the Labour club, but also the Model United Nations and Warwick Speakers societies, where I served in the Exec, and many others – the Portuguese Speakers Society, which I helped to create, the PPE Society, etc.

What are you doing now?

I am studying for a masters in Economics at Nova SBE – the New University of Lisbon.

Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?

I was inspired by the excellent work of alumni ambassadors across the globe in my third year, and I decided that as soon as I graduated, I wanted to become an alumni ambassador!

What kind of people make up the Warwick alumni community in your area?

There is an increasingly large number of people who went to Warwick and are rising up in Portuguese society, including, recently, one Secretary of State!

Have you been back to Warwick recently?

I was there for graduation, on 18th July 2015!
