At Storia Brasil, I pitched and filmed a series on Brazilian women including an MMA fighter, a pilot and a lorry driver. This idea is part of personal research into what it is to be female in a male dominated profession, a question that had become very relevant working as a Camera Assistant in São Paulo. Through meeting these women, I discovered people far braver than I, and confirmed that qualities needed for certain male-dominated professions -  courage, independence and resilience, are also female characteristics; women are mothers, heads of families, accomplished professionals or wherever and whatever they want to be.
