I was born in Brazil in 1981 and lived there for 23 years before emigrating to the UK in 2005. I had read about England’s history since a young age however I moved here simply because of the history of London itself. Everything in this city fascinates me; from it’s parks, pubs and buildings to street names, post boxes and bollards. Watching children “beating the bounds” or the rose ceremony, you can never be tired of London. I love the quirkiness of the little alleys, the secrets of the forgotten Architecture and how fascinating it can be to simply turn a corner and suddenly find a whole new world.
I have worked in some remarkable places in London: museums, palaces, galleries, archives and even digging for the MoL on the Thames foreshore but now I work for Tower Bridge and The Monument for The Great Fire where I daily see the City from a different point of view. Working for the City, learning its history and stories makes me eager to learn more.
London is a flowing, living organism, the old and the new together transforming it every day but always with it’s history at your fingertips. One step, an intricate victorian coal hole; another step, a old Police box; yet another, an office block built seamlessly onto a old roman ruin.
I am just a girl, lost in London trying not to find the way out but a way deeper, further inside what makes this city so… special, so… unique, so… me.
I am a Londoner.
