I am from Mozambique and lived most of my life in Maputo. Did my university studies in computer engineering at ISCTEM as part-time student. My first work experience was with startup companies during university years before joining a more corporate environment. During that time, I was involved in understanding the business to create innovative IT solutions, processes to support them, and to use stored data to provide valuable insights to decision-makers. My professional career helped me understand that exposure to different markets and ideas leads to innovation. This led me to further my studies. I started post-graduation at UCT where I joined the icomms team and experienced their involvement with communities. This created in me a willingness to join a community-oriented company and Dimagi best represents this a company that strives to positively impact underserved communities around the world.
