“I love to spend good times with family and friends and to amuse them! The best compliment I’ve ever heard was from my grandfather that once told me I was ‘the joy of the family’! I love to motivate and inspire the people I work with and I feel grateful when I help someone to have an “Aha” moment!” |ícia-sarmento/23/212/b40 |
