They’re traits she picked up from her mom, the strongest influence in her life.
“My mom,” Bea says, “is my queen! I grew up in a very close family, and I had a super-happy childhood. Every weekend, my mom and dad took me to the beach and to do outdoor activities. I was also the youngest granddaughter – and yes, I was very spoiled! My grandmother taught me poems, and when I was about 5 years old, I recited my first poem in a scholarship presentation. I think after this, my mom and dad realized that I wasn’t ashamed to be myself at all!”
Bea chose a career path that followed her mother’s journey.
“My mom was an Executive Assistant for a famous Brazilian Journal,” Bea notes. “I remember, when I was a child, watching her going to work, and I remember asking questions about her job. I started very young as a receptionist in an oil and gas company, and got promoted only six months later to an Executive Assistant. I think it was a combination of curiosity, passion, and skills!”
