October 13, 2022

Alana is Brazilian and is attending the one-year MAPP program at CEU. She holds a BA in Law, specializing in Public Law from Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo. Over the last 3 years, she has worked as an attorney representing private sector interests in public bids, public concessions, and regulatory issues.

What is your goal in life?

I aspire to make a positive impact on Brazil’s public policies. I would particularly like to work to improve the legal and economic design of public services.

Why did you choose your course of study?

The interdisciplinary aspects of the MAPP program align perfectly with my professional goals, especially the possibility of specializing in development.    

What do you hope to gain from your time at CEU?

I look forward to obtaining skills to critically analyze and evaluate public policies. Being part of CEU’s international community would also be a great learning experience, not only professionally but also personally.
