My name is Catarine Fidencio, I'm 32 and I was born and raised in the favela, have a degree in Administration from PUC-Rio University and also have spent 2 years living in Germany.

 I understand the importance of education as being the right of every citizen and the power of education as an agent of change within society.

This is why I aim to use my work as a way of contributing to education projects in Rocinha. The Kultor Rocinha is a personal project of mine, which allows me to share my knowledge about the favela, and the history of favelas in Rio de Janeiro, with tourists from Brazil and abroad.
