Meet my grandmother-in-law, Dona Natercia, who is one of the sweetest old ladies I have yet had the pleasure to meet. She is gentle, calm and caring. She has a great sense of humour and one of the cutest laughs I’ve ever heard. She always has food ready for hungry guests and she always has a bowl of Sonho de Valsa, my favourite Brazilian chocolate, on the table. She is someone I respect and admire deeply, and I was so happy when she agreed to be part of this project.
