Diva of the Week: Andrea Barbosa-Pereira

divaMissioN’s “Diva of the Week” is international!

Meet Andrea Barbosa-Pereira.  She is a 22 year old graduate of Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts.  She now has a degree in International Relations and Economics.  Her future goals include getting a masters in International Security (abroad in England) that will help her to contribute to international development and helping women and children in need; especially those caught in wars and crises.  Right now, she lives in New York City where she works closely with the United Nations.  Now THAT is diva behavior!

When she’s not working hard, Andrea likes writing poetry, art, and any opportunity to empower women.  Andrea is an international diva.  She’s spent most of her education in international school; part of her education was completed in Switzerland and the rest of her high school years spent at UNIS, the United Nations school in New York City.  It should also be noted that Andrea is a Cape-Verdean beauty- her hometown is Praia in the Cape Verde Islands.  She’s taking over the globe!!!!

Here is what Andrea has to say about her personal style:

 “Definitely feminine with an edge… (I)very rarely wear
makeup. I love the soft look with a leather jacket or boots, but
nothing over the top. Mainly it’s whatever mood I am in in the morning.”

Andrea- all of your accomplishments and future goals are more than commendable.  Our hope is that other young women will see this and be motivated to help others and chase their dreams.  You are definitely worthy of the “Diva of the Week” title. WERK!!!
