About Alanna Sousa

I was born in Maranhão, northwest of Brazil, and I have lived, studied and worked in Canada, England, India, Mozambique and Kenya. Dealing with diversity, I discovered my passion for social entrepreneurship.
When I was a teenager I practiced Judo in a professional level. Wearing that belt was fundamental for strengthening my character and developing my personal discipline, teaching me the values of respect and perseverance, even after many falls. I´m current Atlas Corps Fellow serving at StartUp Cup, in Washington D.C.
I am at my best when I lead people and organizations to make the world a better place. That is why I am building a career of impact in the non-profit sector.
