Check out this chronology of some of the things I have done in the last few years including speaking, training, organizing events, learning permaculture, travelling and having fun while connecting with people in Timor-Leste, Mozambique and around the world. You can also follow me on Twitter (@saritamoreira) and check my Linkedin profile. PGP: 0x6023D406
