About Me I just can't write about myself without sounding either self-deprecating, arrogant or retarded, so I'll let the things on the rest of my profile and my actions speak for themselves. (:

Oh, and, by the way, there are three things I couldn't add to my profile, so I'll write them here. First: my full name is actually Maria Eduarda Valentim Pinto Marques Ferreira (the first two words are my first name, the last four are my surnames), but Care2 won't display my full name, so I had to use only my last surname. Second: I'm actually 13, but the site just wouldn't accept my real birth year. Third: politically, I'm a right-wing liberal (i.e., liberal both economically and socially); I didn't select any option on the "Political Leaning" section as I feel the words "conservative" and "liberal" have a slightly different meaning in the US.

Activist Aspirations
Political Leaning
Religions Born Catholic, quit, parents hate other religions, so I'll wait until I'm 18 to choose  
Eating Habits Omnivorous, just like nature wanted us to be  
Wild Fact About Me I had written a looong text here, but for some reason, Care2 won't let me write more than X characters in this section. :P
My Philosophy Don't let other people's opinions prevent you from doing what you think is right, but be open to what others say, as sometimes they might be right; in other words, try to understand as many points of view as possible, to make an informed decision, but the ultimate choice should be yours.
What Gives Me Hope Enlightened people in a world full of wilful ignorants (please note I'm not talking about knowledge, which not all people have access to, but about intelligence and understanding).
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Well, I think a politician's duty is not to make the world a better place, and I even doubt that's possible, especially in a country like mine, that is not as powerful and influential around the world as the US. All (s)he can do is try to make his/her city/state/country a better place, and, if all politicians did that, the world automatically become a better place. But if I became the president of my country, I would make the economical reformation my country urgently needs. It started in 1994, but there's still a lot that can and needs to be done. People here talk as if we were on our way to becoming a great nation, but without some essential changes in our economy, that belief is risible. But the economy isn't the only thing that need to be reformed to ensure Brazil's growth in the long term; we also need our educational system to become much better than it currently is, or our current good economic phase will be interrupted by a shortage of qualified workers. There's a lot more that needs to be done, because this country has countless problems (and that's something ex-president Lula unfortunately failed to acknowledge, as he did nothing about them), but I think that's the most urgent thing, as all else will fail if Brazil's economy isn't built over solid foundations. You can't talk about helping the poor and blah blah blah if the economy's not strong; you can only help the lower strata of society in the long term by granting them access to good education and job opportunities. Instead of giving them allowances, the government should focus on letting them make money on their own; but, of course, if people are educated, they won't vote for the PT anymore, so it's easier for opportunist politicians to give away tax money.
What/who changed my life and why This might sound retarded, but turning 7 changed my life, as that was when I started to think for myself. All my current religious, political and moral convictions are the result of a mental evolution that started at that age (but, of course, that evolution is not over yet; I'm 14, after all).
