2020 bio:

Andreia is a speaker, writer, and philanthropist. She considers philanthropy being the core of who she is due to being an immigrant from Cape Verde and being born into poverty. Andreia immigrated to the United States at the age of 7 and faced many challenges living in an inner city and not speaking English.

Through her initiative, “More Than Enough,” she serves as an advocate for inner city and underprivileged kids by instilling confidence and empowering them to live life to their full potential despite their circumstances.

Andreia is a graduate of St. Johns University with a degree in public relations. She was named Phoenix Magazine’s 30 under 30 for philanthropy and speaks four languages, which has been a beneficial asset since shes an avid traveler.
