In 2002 Karina graduated from Journalism school at PUC Sao Paulo, Brazil. After many years working as a reporter for multiple news organizations, one day she had "a click" and decided to work only for what her heart beats strong: her ideals. She changed her career and became an independent environmental journalist and moved from Sao Paulo to the Amazon. For two years she worked as the editor of the locally well known 'o eco' website, coordinating the Amazonian project and a team of reporters throughout the nine countries of the Amazonian region. She worked editing and publishing news focused on biodiversity conservation in three different languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese). Karina was also a communications advisor for Greenpeace in their Amazon campaign. In 2008 she spent time in the United States expanding her knowledge enrolling in key environmental courses. In Portland, Oregon Karina gave lectures on the relevance of the rainforest for our planet's health. Since 2005 she has published many articles in several important magazines such as National Geographic Brazil. Recently she graduated on the Gaia Education course. Karina is currently living in Rio de Janeiro and focused on a new challenge and objective: bringing people closer to nature through communications thru "Deep Ecology".

Yogananda (author of the autobiography of a Yogui) says that the world of matter is an illusion / Buddha says that if we accept that everything in life passes, we suffer less / we can have everything we want / here, now. Carpe Diem! / we are all one / work with love for an ideal is one of the best things we can do for ourselves / we are body, mind, emotion and spirit, taking care of all four sides creates harmony and balance / environmental education should be taught at all schools / information + awareness = change! / dance, sing, smile, travel a lot, study, do not forget your friends, forgive yourself and others, try again. "I am sorry. Please, forgive me. Thank you. I love you". Nothing limits achievement like small thinking; nothing expands possibilities like unleashed imagination!" ~William Arthur Ward
Communication, nature, deep ecology, Gaia Education, Amazon, activism, spirituality, creative projects, trips, inspiring life stories, education and many more the stuff of life...
Meditating (I try hard!), singing, giving lectures. I also love to act.
I went to TEDxAmazonia and felt how incredible this experience can be. So I decided to bring to Para, another big State from the Amazon Rainforest region, the TEDxVer-o-Peso - the first TEDx of Para.
