More about me and about the things I believe...
Firstly, being the daughter of "Dona Ondina LourenÃ§o and "Seu Humberto
Golfieri", gave me the oportunity of contact with the third sector
-which was not even called that way yet- by my mother's seamstress
hands that, for 30 years taught handcrafting at an assistance
institute in the neighborhood of "Ipiranga". Under the folding fabric
tables did I witness, for the first time, the formation of a social
The hands of my father put me in contact with mechanics, a job he held
for over 40 years. So, surprisingly, you could hear me pounding on
alternators, distributors, pistons, and others. This mechanistic view,
cartesian, indeed, helped organize a little of my rational thought...
Still very early, studying at a college that gave funds to UNESP's
School of Music, I was seduced by the sounds that came from there...
From the enchantment that came with the children's choir to the
conviction of the electric guitar as it had been stamped in the 50's,
it only took a few years...
This artistic base, drawn by curiosity, turned out to be the first
step of a journey that went through several performances in the
entertainement, culture and poetry sector , which ended up, to my
mother's disappointment, leading me to the Law Course of "PontifÃcia
Universidade CatÃ³lica de SÃ£o Paulo".
There, I was a member of the "Ethos" management of the Academic Center
for four years, which added to me experience, flexibility and a strong
desire of working in teams.
Since then, the Third Sector theme, revived in 1999 by the launching
of the OSCIPs law, ended up becoming the reason of my work and my
In 2001, another theme that was familiar to me - the rights of
disabled people - also became part of my daily work, first with a
quick passage in the "Paradigma" Institute, which promotes social
inclusion and, more recently, with two other organizations, "Mais
DiferenÃ§as" and "3IN" with regard specifically to inclusive education.
Seduced by physics, by Mario Schemberg and science, started to
integrate this year, the Council of the Association of Friends of
After some years studying the third sector and inclusion, I was hooked
by the concepts of dialogue, networks and local development. Thanks to
Marcos Vaz Moreira, with whom I had immediate empathy, I was
integrated to a large team of agents at "Senac SÃ£o Paulo"
Thus, to develop and monitor the development of network social
inclusion projects through education and culture has become one of my
greatest passions and vocations.
"No wonder can I understand those who seek the path. So did I work
very hard to seek mine And today as I seek eagerly and harshnessly my
best way of being, my shortcut, for I no longer dare to call it a
path. I, who had wanted. The Way, with capital letters, now I cling
fiercely looking for a way of walking, with right steps. But the
shortcut with cooling shadows and light reflecting through the trees,
the shortcut where I could finally be miself, that I haven't yet
found. But one thing I know: My path is not who I am, but it is
another, the others. When I can fully feel the other, I will be saved
and think: this is my destination. " (Clarice Lispector)
"Life invents! We begin things in not knowing why, and from that we
lose power - for life is collective effort of everyone, by everyone

An idea worth spreading
For the thorough operation of a network, considering the social
complexity we live in, we believe that 4 principles are essential:
Democracy, Equality, Horizontal level and Diversity. Below, we expose
brief comments on each principle.
A network only becomes possible in a democratic system that allows
full participation of people. We do not refer to democracy as the will
of the majority but as peopleâ€™s full participation in decisions and
debates and as respect to the diversity present in the group. In
networks we helped to foment, thanks to the number of participants, we
try to avoid that the group uses votes to decide debating issues. This
is because votes always carry two inseparable consequences: a winner
and a loser and the second will always try to reverse their position.
We have adopted, by principle and practice, the use of consensus.
I'm passionate about
the greatest love of my life is the practice of developing talent found in people who somehow crossed my path.
