Mariana Beleza Tavares
My business card says professional daydreamer and copywriter.
I am – from the heart – a content(e) producer, in other words, a happy content ‘generator’ (contente=happy, in Portuguese).
I try that my texts/interviews to inspiring people – which is a privilege to do for IM Magazine – are themselves generators of light.
I strongly aspire that our readers become more daring, creative, tolerant and humble. Illuminated, in a good way, and grateful for the gift of diversity.
I like to think that Mariana, after joining IM Magazine, developed these qualities and puts them into practice on a day-to-day basis. A professional daydreamer is a dreamer and an idealist, that likes to accomplish. My vision is to have the hands touching the clouds (the digital cloud!) and the feet firmly on the ground. I – proudly – graduated in Economics, although in my head 2+2=5.
I really enjoy writing and, during the last decade, I have joyfully worked at Bank BPI´s corporate communication. It is a way of joining my academic training to the innate need to write. Always putting into practice the values mentioned above.
Currently, I work as a freelancer, which has allowed me to know other businesses, develop different tasks and meet new people. I’m taking a Certificate in Digital Marketing, an online course created by Google, to acquire new skills, participate in the digital (r) evolution and being able to track my 14 year old daughter – Beatriz. I look at the world as a global site, and if I had a flying carpet, would already have crossed it all the way around.
I like to be Portuguese and everything that is created in my country with courage, grit and perseverance A good example is IM Magazine. I am an enthusiast for life, with all its colors. Gray included. Quoting the Brazilian poet Carlos Drummond de Andrade, “Every day I live, the more I become convinced that the waste of life are in love that we don’t give, the forces that we don’t use, in the selfish prudence that nothing ventures, and that, dodging the suffering, we lose also the happiness. Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.”
I am a compulsive reader, inveterate traveller and Yoga Sámkhya practitioner.
