Bio: 
My name is João. I'm 29 years old and I hope I'm still in time to change the world! As long I can remember I was interested on the specific social issues around me and in the world in general. But my desires of being a real activist never materialize, my action on the world always fell short of my expectations. A year ago I decided that I can (and should) do more - I saved some money and quit my job as IT consultant. A job that, in some ways, was against my principles but taught me a lot about the corporate world. I started a long-term travel to some underdeveloped countries expecting to open a door for a new life where I can be more active on creating a better world.
Volunteering Experience: 
I was a boy scout leader for 6 years - from 2004 to 2019 - where I worked with youths aged between 10 and 17. I helped, during weekends for a period of 3 months, a Portuguese institution organizing activities for orphans and children taken from their parents. I volunteered for 1 month in 2013 in Malawi helping with several projects from teaching IT to organizing workshops. I taught English, general knowledge and IT in a school in Kerala, India for one month earlier this year (2016).
Education: 
Masters in Electronic engineering
Occupation: 
IT Consultant
