She Is Awake aims to teach about social justice, sustainability, and slow living. A place where we can talk about all of these topics, and get the word out there about these ideas. These are important ideas, and having a platform to voice them can help better thousands of people, and even educate tons more onto sustainable life choices.
Antónia Prata or just Nia, a woman of color from Luanda, Angola. Born in 1994 during the civil war and moved to Lisbon at 6 years old. She has a Urban and planning Bsc and an MSc in Project management by Cardiff Met University.
Antónia, current projects is called Zero Waste Angola. This is an educational program that helps people to make changes in their communities on a personal, as well as a political level. This project is currently being worked to make an NGO, expanding it to many other parts of Africa as well.
Growing up near a ditch that was used as a waste dump due to last of trash bins changed Antónia outlook on life. It helped to find an appreciation for nature, and to want to make the world a more eco-friendly and sustainable place for everyone. In the way that nobody else will have to live in the same conditions that she grew up with.
The world is a place that we all live, so it is best to make sure that it is ethical and sustainable for all of us.
