Human rights, migration, mission: The work as a Brazilian correspondent has changed my view of my home country Germany and global challenges.
I started my journalistic career in northern Germany at the daily newspapers Hamburger Abendblatt and Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung HAZ.
As a Brazil correspondent for the Berlin daily taz, I reported on the first free elections after the military dictatorship in 1989.

At Deutsche Welle, I seek to explain my second home to an international audience and also report on important social and ethical debates. For my work, I was awarded the Lorenzo Natali Prize for Human Rights by the EU-Commission and the Media Prize for Development Policy from the German Government.
In my spare time, I like to sing Samba, Blues and Bossa Nova.
