Lúcia Fernandes, the Onboarding Manager at Engel & Völkers Lisbon, answers the following 10 questions:
1) A book
"The Shack" - From the bestselling author, William Paul Young, published in 2007. A book that taught me about the human ability to get through obstacles and become resilient in life.
2) A phrase
It is not easy to pick one of many phrases that have taught me so much. However, I can highlight the phrase, "The real motivation comes from achievement, personal development, job satisfaction and recognition." - by Frederick Herzberg.
3) A place
Costa Vincentina - Alentejo! This part of the Costa Alentejana in Portugal is simply magical and inspiring. It is full of nooks and crannies that literally take us into nature. I recommend everyone to visit!
4) A song
Music is very important in my life! I do not live without music and there are many songs that are memorable for me. I like the different types of genres: pop, hip-hop, rock, fado, opera, and many others ... Today I will highlight the song "Shallow" with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
5) A sport
I do not like playing sports if I don't have to! But if I have to choose, I will go for swimming and hiking.
6) A movie
Life is Beautiful! A movie that has inspired me for life! A source of inspiration and overcoming difficulties, in one of the worst scenarios we can imagine.
7) A destination
Hamburg. I had the pleasure of spending a week in Hamburg at work, but since then I dream of returning there. A beautiful city that surprised me in every way!
8) A favourite restaurant / food
The "As Furnas" Restaurant in Guincho, Cascais. A beautiful place with a sea view and the seafood is very good!
9) Your perfect day
Prepare a meal for the whole family and enjoy their company! Followed by a toast to life and appreciate the time we spend together! And the dessert can not be missed out, because I always make a cake.
10) A person you admire
The person I most admire is my mother! The woman of my life! Humble, kind and patient, who, without knowing how to read or write, raised five children and is still my foundation today. She taught me the best life values and she made me into the woman I am today! Thanks Mom!
