As a mother and teacher, I speak on behalf of the children of the world, giving a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. I believe the best way to promote democracy, world peace, and the fulfillment of humankind's potential is to protect, nurture, and invest in the education of your youth. They are the world's most precious resource, and our hope for the future. I am surrounded by children and friends from around the world who have influenced me, and I am constantly reminded of the fact that each and every one of us has something to contribute. I believe in the power of digital media, and as an idealist at heart, I hope to use my video skills to instill hope and to make a positive impact on my community and the world. It has become my life's goal to reach outside the walls of my classroom to inspire and empower others to do the same.

Thanks to all who have continued to support, encourage, and believe in me. This includes my friends and family here and in Brazil, fellow Pleasanton teachers, students, parents, and my town. Thanks to all of my own teachers, and those who have invested in me. They have given me purpose and direction, particularly AIESEC, the Pleasanton Unified School District, the Krause Center for Innovation, Adobe Youth Voices, the Bay Area Video Coalition, and the Google Teacher Academy.
