New habits and writing tips

On the third week of the Mina de Ouro project, the subjects started to see the results of their new habits in the Do it Today. workshop. The girls shared their victories and their struggles and were guided on how to overcome them. Our partners from the Do it Today. project  presented several techniques for overcoming obstacles and enhancing productivity. With all that new acquired knowledge, the girls planned their next week and made sure they'll get even closer to reaching their goals.

 

After that, the incredible Rafaela Soares, author of the book Sob a Roseira came to talk about her writing career and about how she manages to keep up with her writing, medical school, two blogs and a youtube channel. Here is the secret: time management. That goes to show the importance of what the subjects learn at the Do it Today. workshop

 

But that's not all. The writer also gave amazing tips on how to start writing, how to plan the text and each chapter and how to captivate the reader; she also demonstrated the steps on how to publish a book and how to secure your copyrights.

Finally, the author showed all the steps to writing a great motivation letters for applying to job positions, internships and educational opportunities, and told all about her techniques for earning top marks in the national high school exam and the university admission exams.

 

The participants also received the artist and medical student Gabriela Soares (Rafaela's twin sister), who helped organising and producing the content of the presentation and who also showed a little of her talent in the piano. The sisters are donating several text books for university admission exams and also a copy of Rafaela's book Sob a Roseira for the socio-educational center's library.
