To work with me
in the words of some of my colleagues,
partners and clients.

Regardless of the type of project that we were involved in, teamwork was always the motto. Please get in touch if you need a formal recommendation letter or further insight.

As a freelance academic writer in the spheres of international law, sociology and philosophy, gender, mass media, and international and public relations, Alexandra proved a responsible collaborator. She is one of the few collaborators who show dedication to the job and provide qualitative papers. She proved not only attention to details, accurate and advanced knowledge of English, very cooperative and flexible to changes, but also strong work ethic, commitment to deliver the projects in time and working effectively with little guidance. I am happy to work with her!

As a volunteer lawyer, Alexandra undertook a substantial legal research project in 2012 for the Disaster Law Programme of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Society (IFRC). This was for a project which I was coordinating on the role of legislation in supporting disaster risk reduction. Alexandra did the desk survey and report of all the relevant laws in Angola, using both her English and Portuguese language skills, a complex project that took more than a month full time work. Her contribution to the overall project was significant and in the process she demonstrated excellent online legal research, analytical and report-writing skills.
