Mayara Costa

Programs and Community Coordinator (Brazil), Amani Institute

Mayara is from the beautiful Pernambuco state in Brazil. She has been in the impact and social innovation sector since before it became a buzz word in Brazil as she believes they are the way we can contribute in making changes that can improve the world.

She holds a Master's in Business Administration from the Federal University of Campina Grande and a degree in International Relations from the Federal University of Paraíba. In the technology and social innovation ecosystem, she has contributed through various roles such as a Business and Entrepreneurship Manager at Voxar Labs, a mentor for female ventures at Belabs Accelerator and even co-founded “Te orienta", to name a few.

In mid 2022 Mayara joined the Amani Institute team on a permanent basis after consulting in our FIS program in previous years. She is currently our Coordinator of Programs and Projects whilst still continuing as a Tutor of Social Impact Training in FIS.

When not working you can find here with her little dog on the beaches of Pernambuco and ideally also with her favourite dessert - strawberry pie.
