Hi, my name is Madalena, I'm 14 years old, I'm in the 9th grade of school and I live in Portugal, Sintra, with my parents, my 3 younger brothers and my 2 cats.
My favorite hobbies are reading, painting and writing.
I love to visit Sintra's monuments and walk in the woods.
I really like to visit new places, experience adventures and explore. I guess that's one of the reasons why I want to join School at Sea.
I like challenges, to learn new things and to travel.
When I was 7 years old, my family moved to Terceira Island in the Azores and we lived there for 3 years. It was there that my brother Simão was born. And it was also where I met Julia and Emilia, two sisters that were living in the same island as we did and later joined School at Sea. That's how I heard about this project.
When we came back to the mainland Portugal, I was homeschooled for 2 years, the 5th and the 6th grades. This experience was very useful and positive. I know since then that I can learn by myself, with some help without attending formal classes.
When I got to the 7th grade, I decided to go back to school where I still am today.-
I really want to join School at Sea!!
