I'm Vera, born in '88 and i am a graphic designer from Porto, Portugal.
I thought about writing some words about me, but better than that, i decided to ask some people that are connected with me (or because they're friends, worked or studied with me), to write down some feedback and opinions about my work and personality. Some are connected with graphic design too, some not, artists, and some good people i am lucky to know.
I asked them to be honest and i didn't changed what they wrote.
So... here you have:
"I know Vera for a long long time. She is the most easy going person that i've ever met. Always in a good mood, she is responsible to bring good energy everywhere she goes. In regards to work, she is very talented, responsible and reliable."
