Ana Sofia Vítor (MSc in Management ’13) is Launching her 3rd Book

Ana Sofia Vítor (MSc in Management ’13) is launching her 3rd book next June 4th, at Feira do Livro, 12pm. To our alumna, writing is a creative activity as it allows her to escape from her analytic daily routine:

“Writing to children and being with them on book presentations is extremely rewarding. They are my motivation to be involved on this kind of projects!”

 “O Melhor Jogador do Mundo” – The Best Football Player in the World – is a children's book about friendship but it will certainly entertain the whole family.
