SHE FOR SHE // #3 Meet Xana


O SHE FOR SHE deste mês veio um bocadinho mais tarde, mas ainda dentro de um Abril cheio de sol e super primaveril. Tal como o mês de Março foi dedicado à Liliana, Abril pertence à Xana, que sempre me recebeu com um sorriso doce, que sempre me fez rir e cuja história, que hoje aqui vos apresento, considero ser importante para abrir mentalidades e oferecer um futuro mais tranquilo a quem mais precisa dele.

SHE FOR SHE came a little late this month, but still in time for April filled with this delicious vernal sun. This will be the first post in this project where I'll be writing in English, so in a quick summary, let me explain what SHE FOR SHE is about: each month I intend to talk with a woman of my choosing, doing a small photoshoot and interviewing her in order to learn a bit more about her life. With this, I want to celebrate women and all they have to offer to the world, showing that we all have a story worth telling, if we take time for it. March was dedicated to Liliana and April belongs to Xana, a person that always came to me with a sweet smile, a person that always made me laugh and whose story, that I present to you, consider to be really important in order to change mentalities and offer a more peaceful future to those who need it the most.

My struggles as a writer



Ser escritor(a) é talvez das profissões mais complexas que existem. Seja enquanto jornalista ou académico, como poeta ou blogger, escrever é das actividades mais ingratas e, ao mesmo tempo, das mais gratificantes. Parece contraditório, não parece? Mas a verdade é que, muitas vezes, parece que a escrita não é algo que realmente nos pertence, mas que vai e vem comandada por outras forças, exteriores a nós mesmos. Escrever sobre o que é escrever é ainda mais complicado, mas é sobre isso que vos quero falar hoje - as dificuldades que sinto enquanto escritora.


Being a writer is perhaps one of the most complex professions in existence. Whether as a journalist or in academic studies, as a poet or as a blogger, writing is one of the most ungrateful, yet rewarding activities. Sounds conflicting, doesn't it? But the truth is that, many times, it feels like writing isn't something that truly belongs to us, but that comes and goes commanded by external forces. Writing about what it is writing is even more complicated, but it's what I want to talk about with you today - the struggles I feel as a writer.
