There’s one week per year when all these lovely Portuguese faces are in Seattle and it is the HAPPIEST week! Love to get a visit from all the former coworkers and friends from when I used to work at Microsoft in Portugal, I miss you all dearly ❤️🇵🇹🇺🇸 . . . . . . . . . . #microsoft #microsoftlife #microsoftready #ready #portugal #usa #pt #unitedstates #womeninstem #microsoftwomen @microsoftlife #womenintech #seattle #visitseattle #followyourdreams #coworkers #friendsvisiting #tavolata #caphill #dinner #missyouall

Noob has been keeping me company while working from home! Very much over this snow storm and can’t wait to get back to the office tomorrow, but it’s nice hanging out with him and getting all the cuddles when things get stressful 😻 (and the occasional bite. Because he’s mean like that) . . . . . . . . . #cat #catsofinstagram #catstagram #theboss #noob #wfh #workingfromhome #surface #surfacebook #surfacepro #microsoft #microsoftlife #snowstorm #snowmaggedon #snowpocalypse #seattle #bellevue #seattlesnow #snowmageddon2019 #snowpocalypse2019 #perks #catlovers

We are live! Ventured through the snow storm to be at the studio today to host and cast the @microsoftstore @gearsofwar tournament this Sunday, joining @k8monst3r and @vellycasts. Make sure you tune in and support (and hey, free skins) at: live.gearsofwar.com . I like to put myself in uncomfortable and scary situations, like this one is, because I absolutely love to learn. Doing more hosting and casting is on the roadmap of skills I want to get better at in the near future, and what better game to get started than Gears: been playing since day 1 of the franchise, competitively, organizing and attending events, and I absolutely love it. Wish me luck 🤞 love that my job enables me to have all these side opportunities. I’m fully dedicated to my career, and having the best time of my life. “Say yes until you can’t say no” - Catarina, 2015. . PS: friendly reminder that my actual job is zero about all of this visible stuff that you (currently) see 😅 . . . . . . . . . @watchmixer @xboxmexico @xbox @microsoftlife #mixer #mixerstreamer #gears #gow #gearsofwar #gearsesports #microsoftstore #microsoftlife #hosting #casting #esports #esportslife #caster #commentator #matchups #xbox #xboxone #xboxonex #gamer #gamergirl @womeningaming #womeningaming #bosslady #womeninesports #womeninstem #competitive #gaming #games #videogames

When the sun came out after hours of snowfall (videogames to the rescue!), I had to go for a walk to enjoy this beautiful scenery ☃️ all the pups, couples, children and snowmen made me happy. And a warm cup of coffee with Portuguese friends that are visiting Seattle for work was the 🍒 on top of the cake. But noooow... I’m hoping we don’t get any more. I have stuff to do and all the snow is slowing me down 🥶 . . . . . . . . . . . #snow #snowday #snowmageddon #seattlesnow #seattlesnowpocalypse #seattle #visitseattle #winter #winterwonderland #pnw #pacificnorthwest #upperleftusa #bellevue #downtown #snowpocalypse #snowpocalypse2019 #snowmaggedon2019 #gamer #winterishere #winteriscoming

Missing my #gearsfam already.

It’s Championship Sunday at #gearsmx! These weekends are long, tiring, draining BUT SO MUCH FUN. The people I get to work with, the Gears fans, the teams, the game... I love them. Still always have that itch to actually play and compete like in the old times... it’s unbelievable that I get to attend an actual Pro Circuit. Forever a fan. 2019 is an exciting year for the franchise and I can’t wait to witness and play my tiny part on what comes next ⚙️ tune in to watch the tournament all day today and for the chance to win prizes and skins: live.gearsofwar.com I ❤️ TC, Gears, esports and 🇲🇽 . 📸 @shivalikashy . . . . . . . . . . . @gearsofwar @xbox @xboxmexico #gears #gearsofwar #gears4 #gears5 #xbox #xboxone #xboxonex #gaming #xboxgaming #esports #competition #ghostgaming #opticgaming #reciprocity @teamreciprocity @opticgaming @ghostgaming__gg #gamergirl #esportsgears #socialteam #gamergirl #socialmedia #microsoftstudios #microsoftlife #womeningaming @womeningaming #fortnite #gaming #gamer

I waited 13 years for this day. This franchise is so special ❤️ The first game completely changed what videogames meant to me. More than that, it introduced me to a lot of online communities at the time, when the internet was still a baby, where I met and made friends from all over the world just because we loved the game and wanted the endlessly talk about it on forums (hey I was a mod at the KH forums on Gamespot, okay? It was a big deal! 😅). I owe a lot of my English to that. Now, diving into #kingdomhearts3!! It looks freaking gorgeous on the Xbox One X and 4K OLED. Oh, and Sora has its own version of Instagram in-game and I am LIVING FOR IT! . . . . . . . . . . . . #kingdomhearts #kh #xbox #xboxone #gaming #gamer #gamespot #forums #xboxonex #kh3 #squareenix #disney #pixar #videogames #memories #releaseday #womeningaming @kingdomhearts @squareenix @squareenixusa @disney @pixar @xbox #playstation #lovethisgame #fan #xboxgaming

I’m so inspired by them ❤️ @shellykicks @panattoni_ @rosegunson @amazoe @lissathecocoa and not in the picture but @nickygram @hailey.geller. We had a great day in Vancouver joined by over 100+ game devs to learn about the importance of diversity, inclusion and representation in games and the gaming industry. Shout out to all my fellow @womeningaming who were not there as well, all of whom I deeply admire 🙌 #womancrushsunday . . . . . . . . . #sundaycrush #thecoalition #womeningaming #womeninstem #gamedev #diversity #representation #inclusion #xbox #xboxone #xboxonex #gears #gearsofwar #microsoftlife #gamingindustry #gaming #gdc @gearsofwar @xbox #alwaysbelearning #panel #womeninspiringwomen #womenempoweringwomen #womenwholead #bosslady #girlboss

Spending the day in Vancouver at The Coalition with @womeningaming today! Thank you @rosegunson and @amazoe for putting this event together with the support of the amazing folks at TC and @gearsviking. The panel, named “When Art Imitates Reality: The Value of Diverse Characters in Games” is super pressing. Only 8% of all games shown in the last E3 had diverse main characters. Previous year it was 7%. Can’t wait to learn from subject matter experts on this subject and understand how all of us in the gaming industry can move forward and promote change. . . . . . . . . . #womenintech @gearsofwar @xbox @microsoftlife @microsoftvan #gearsofwar #gears #womeningaming #gamedevelopment #xbox #xboxone #xboxlive #thecoalition #microsoftlife #microsoft #diversityandinclusion #gamingindustry #diversity #inclusion #gamers #gaming #videogames #coalition #representationmatters #womenempowerment #leadership #playstation #pcgaming #nintendo

Xbox Live is a place for everyone and we strive every day to make it fun and safe. What is it about videogames and gaming that makes me love it so much and be so passionate about it? Yes, I’ve had tons of fun with the hundreds (thousands?) of games I’ve played my entire life and yes, it’s a medium that is capable of encapsulating new experiences every single time I pick up a controller but what really, *really* made a difference in my life was all the amazing people I met through gaming and all the real life experience that gaming enabled me to have with those same people. That’s my big drive when working on the social and community aspects of Xbox Live: how can I make sure that we are creating the products and features that will enable people all around the world to have those same life changing experiences as I did, meeting people they can relate to while sharing a common passion - playing games. . . . . . . . . . @xbox @microsoft @microsoftlife @womeningaming @watchmixer @womeninproduct #xbox #xboxone #gaming #gamingindustry #xboxonex #womeningaming #womenintech #womeninbusiness #watchmixer #mixerstreamer #mixer #streamer #gamergirl #gamer #xboxlive #gamingcommunity #xboxgaming #gamingforeveryone #g4e #ilovemyjob #teamxbox #inspireothers #bekind #dowhatsright #fortnite #girlpower #girlboss #womeninstem @womenontopp @womenintech @pwitech @websummit #portuguese

Saw a pretty powerful post yesterday about selfies and the usual hate that surround women who post them (from @eatwellwithsari). If you follow my stories, you know I am super dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle (well, at least in terms of food and workouts, I’m not too good with sleep 🤫) - part of it is that I am becoming more and more aware that we only have this one life, time is limited, and I want to make the most of it. The other side that you don’t see as often though: I work extra hard because I’ve struggled with self confidence. So if you see me posting selfies, either at the gym, or a special glam day, or if I just feel like it, you bet that I’m doing it for me: finally feeling brave enough, empowered enough, to be proud of who I am and how I look. They help me in loving myself. They help me in being comfortable with myself. They do wonders in silencing the voice in my head saying “you’re not good enough”. I have big goals and a lot I still want to achieve. I want to have an impact in the world. And for that, I need to become, every day, a better version of myself, in all aspects of life. Oh, and you bet that I will mash that Like button on any selfies out there from my fellow women and men who are just feeling themselves that day.
