meet Amanda

I am a Brazilian journalist and photographer, currently based in Prague, where I attend a master’s degree in Journalism, Media and Globalisation at Charles University, with an Erasmus Mundus scholarship. I have a specialisation in Public Policies and Gender Justice from the Latinamerican Council of Social Sciences. My work is mostly focused on migration, culture and climate justice. 

Over the past two years, my journalistic work has been published in English in outlets such as National Geographic, Al Jazeera and EU Observer; in Portuguese in outlets such as Folha de São Paulo and BBC Brasil; and in Spanish in the non-profit Argentinian magazine La Luciérnaga. In 2020 I was awarded Climate Tracker’s Online Climate Justice Fellowship, to report online during COP26, and was selected to be a part of the Solutions Journalism Network 2020 mentorship cohort.

My photojournalistic work has been featured on The New Humanitarian, Al Jazeera, EU Observer, Foto Féminas, Revista Crisis and Totaly Dublin. More of my photographic work was exhibited at Festival de Fotografia de Tiradentes in 2017 and 2020, and at Elas Festival in 2019. In 2020, I was part of the organization team of Fotografias por Minas, a campaign that united hundreds of photographers to raise funds for Covid-19 relief in Minas Gerais, Brazil.

In 2014, I received a scholarship from AFS Intercultural Programs to take part in an international Symposium where, together with other young people from all over the world, I produced and presented recommendations related to Global Citizenship Education at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris.
