LAIZA DE CARVALHO LIMA
I am Brazilian, born in the state of Rio de Janeiro, but during my adolescence, I was raised in the countryside of the state of Pernambuco in the countryside, the predominant biome is my much-loved Caatinga biome, my white forest, the city of Petrolina where I live bathed by the São Francisco River Basin in which I grew up learning to respect and protect it. Because I had an intimate relationship with nature since I was little, I always had a strong environmental awareness, I always knew that I wanted to do something to help, impacting in a positive way .When I entered the university, this desire to make a difference, in addition to caring, preserving, recovering, shaped me in the search for knowledge.
At the moment, I am studying Agronomic Engineering at the Federal University of Vale do São Francisco (UNIVASF),I was able to add and offer the spirit of leadership and proactivity at the university, in which I developed scientific research and community activities. I have been an intern at the Center for Ecology and Environmental Monitoring (NEMA) since my second year of graduation, and interventions aimed to revitalize the riparian forests of the São Francisco River Basin(BHSF) was one of its activities. Moreover, I implemented the social project “Raízes do Sertão”, which aimed to promote environmental awareness to public school students in the rural by presenting actions developed by NEMA. I also developed scientific projects for nucleus actions, Resulting in the improvement of large-scale agricultural production of a specific species used to recover degraded areas from the margins of the BHSF Integration Program, significantly reducing costs. From these projects, I was invited to participate in the academic directory (DACBIO) to be secretary of environmental management and to be part of the management committee at the UNIVASF foundation’s integrated student development and training program.
