De Dentro Para Fora com Eunice Maia

From the Inside Out with Eunice Maia

I'm from Minho on loan in Lisbon, my heart yearning for the marine silence of São Miguel. My inner geography is made up of places and people I call "home" and places that challenge me, inspire me and make me linger. It is on this intimate itinerary that I (re)discover myself every day. With my husband, I founded a store called Maria Granelwhich started out as an organic bulk grocery store and grew into something that transcended its physical walls, a waste reduction project that, along the way, changed my life. In addition to the store and this grocery trade, I have another great passion: teaching (I'm a teacher) and learning. I steal from Pessoa (Campos) the quote that defines the bubbling state in which my mind is almost always immersed: "[...] I have in me all the dreams of the world". It is this idealism that fuels my hope and action every day.
