Hello, my name is Maria Silveira, I am the only girl among my siblings and it has been an interesting experience growing up with brothers. I come from a fashion background and have a keen eye for style, but I discovered that I am better at administrative tasks. I enjoy the challenge of managing day-to-day operations and ensuring that things run smoothly. In my free time, I like to stay active by going to sport events. I love being active its a great way to keep fit and it helps me clear my mind after a long daya. I am also an avid cook and love experimenting with new recipes. There’s something very satisfying about creating a delicious meal from scratch. But above all else, spending quality time with my family is the most important thing to me. Whether we’re watching a movie, playing board games, or simply enjoying each other’s company, I cherish every moment we have together. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little better.
