Our team

Considering the diversity of subjects with which we have to deal, we believe that the institutional and governmental relations professional should be curious. In this sense, when building our team, we prioritize people who have different profiles and interests - political, economics, sociology, history, music, computer science, football, fashion, dance, cuisine and art.

Granddaughter of candangos, political scientist by profession and lover of Latin America. A child of the most beloved square in the country, I grew up loving to follow each new electoral campaign and all the mobilization of people around the period. A little older, I had contact with the high school mobilization and there I realized that my greatest passion is the social sciences. Who doesn't like to study the Brazilian people? At UnB, I came across a new world and different perspectives on what is politics and the engagement behind a social action. Fan of reality shows, I learned since I was young to be aware of every movement of an individual, be it famous or political. As a researcher in political careers, I believe that each person shapes their destiny little by little, but they also need the help of others for them to prosper. Thus, I see Umbelino as a daily school that helps me to be the professional I dream of being.

My name is João Luiz Bendito Lapa, I'm 22 years old and I'm majoring in Public Policy Management at the University of Brasília (UnB). Son of parents who are teachers – he in mathematics and she in art history – who met teaching together, I was encouraged to study and get in contact with the various forms and manifestations of art and culture from an early age. Like every Brasiliense, I am an enthusiast for politics and like to follow the discussions and deliberations in our legislative houses and in the Executive Branch.

I decided to study Public Policy Management because I understand that the transformation of our society necessarily involves good practices in the State-Business-Society relationship. At university, I got involved with several projects, I was a member of research groups, I was part of the management of DCE Honestino Guimarães as coordinator of the teaching and extension portfolio and I participated in a scientific initiation project, where I studied the Brazilian public debt. In these times of pandemic, I really miss the active and pulsating life of the University of Brasília!

The combination of a taste for words and History was decisive for his professional choice: he studied Law and Political Science at the same time. Easy decision to make and difficult to carry out. After some stumbling blocks inherent to the restlessness of early adulthood and adjusted course directions, he went through with what he had proposed.

And it was Political Science at UnB that presented the universe of Government Relations. World he joined in 2011, through Umbelino Lôbo. The beginning was as an intern. But he quickly became part of the Legislative Power's follow-up advisory team. It was love at first sight. And it only increases. So much so that it encouraged her to get to know in depth other themes and another universe. Since 2020 he has been studying foreign trade, it is the curiosity associated with the desire to expand knowledge to better exercise the profession he embraced.

These are the daily discoveries experienced in the daily life of the National Congress and the executive branch and the desire to make a difference sharpen the girl's curiosity full of dreams. This is what moves Luisa: dreams and willingness to participate in the construction of a better, fairer and more democratic future for future generations.
