Meet Me – Gabriella Fonseca Ribeiro

Who are you?
I am Gabriella, the Online and Social Media Manager of BOOST&Co.

What do you do?
I take care of BOOST’s online presence, create content for social media, connect with prospective clients, manage online ads, report our campaigns, identify trends and do some small coding in the website when it is necessary (although coding is not my passion!)

Where can we find you?
The best way to connect is via Twitter or Linkedin.

What can’t you work without?
Internet!

What motivates you to work hard?
Helping people and knowing that I will make the difference in someone’s life.

What is your favorite thing about your job?
Apart from helping people to improve, I like the need of constant learning and the fact that I can work from anywhere – as long as I have a computer and internet connection!

What’s the most interesting thing you can see out of your office?
Unfortunately I cannot see it through my window, but St Paul’s Cathedral is one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve seen so far – and it is less than a minute walk from BOOST.

How many languages do you speak?
Fluently two: Portuguese and English. But I can understand a lot in Spanish and I am improving Dutch slowly.

What really makes you angry?
Selfishness and close-minded, inflexible people. It is cliché, but the world would be a better place with small acts of kindness from everyone.

What is one thing you will never do again?
Snowboarding! I tried it indoors once and I wasn’t very successful (Maybe because I come from a very warm country with no sign of snow!)

Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car?
Ride a bike.

Tell us something interesting about you, that few people know
Back in highschool, I was crazy about Maths and I have been in a few editions of the Brazilian National Math Olympics. I started studying Computer’s Math at uni, but it was too technical so I changed to Information Systems and later on I graduated in Art&Technology, in the Netherlands.

What dream do you still want to fulfil?
Along with travelling with my parents through Europe, I plan to have an animal shelter or actively support an organisation for animals rights in a near future.
