Louise Ferreira

  • Santana de Parnaíba, Brazil
For 15 years, I lived in the breaks of SP. Before I even found myself in the arts, I found in education a way to change my reality and that of others around me. In 2018, I won a full scholarship to finish my high school in Switzerland. During my stay, I reconnected with the visual arts and discovered a new passion: social entrepreneurship and created Prep Change — my current Startup, in which I had the honor of being named Global Teen Leader 2021. For 15 years I could never imagine that I, young, female, black and peripheral, would be where I am today. Nowadays, I find myself dedicating part of my life to inspiring people, be it through art or social entrepreneurship (or why not both?).
