About Filipe


I'm an English teacher, married, Christian, and a translator as a hobby, which has helped me to improve my skills as an English speaker (and giving me some profit as well, I admit). Being a volunteer in TED is amazing. I have the opportunity of being part of a huge translation network, with rules very well settled and in constant evolution. I couldn't be more excited about it!

An idea worth spreading

Free, quality and remarkable education for everyone in the world, starting with women. That's what I've been learning within these 15 years I've been a teacher. I hope I can see the world becoming a better place day by day. It's a long and, sometimes, slow process, but it can happen, if each one of us do our part.

I'm passionate about

Films, literature, education, music and my wife (last, but not least).

People don't know I'm good at

Films, reading, and storytelling.
