Since very young Hugo felt he needed to give back what he received in life but never knew how to do it. After he graduated he had the chance to work one weekend at ‘Um Teto para meu País’, which allowed him to get in contact with people living a completely different life and dramatically changed his understanding of meritocracy. Looking for ways how to dedicate more time for social work he joined Amani Institute to help him transition from the private to the social change sector. Hugo graduated in Chemical Engineer in EEL – USP in 2012 and interned at BASF in lab and then at Transpacific Bituminous in Australia. He is currently working at Toray do Brasil LTDA.
