A doctor who became a saleswoman until he received money to practice his profession in Brazil. And the story of a Panamanian student who came to Juiz de Fora to complete her master’s degree in physical therapy and saw the classes as an opportunity to improve her relationships with fellow graduates and faculty,” says principal Marina. Neves, emphasizing that “although many are still unable to access documents proving their school education due to the financial costs of gaining access to diplomas and school transcripts in their countries of origin or even proof of their profession, thanks in words every person is palpable.”

Ana Cristina Carrola of the Portuguese Environmental Protection Agency (APA), who also took part in the debate, stressed that the average amount of waste per year per inhabitant in the European Union is 173 kg, less than the 183 kg that is thrown away by the Portuguese.
