I’m Ana, I have joined IKEA in 2014. I started in Kitchens and am now in Com&In.
I have known about the campaigns from IKEA since I was a student. I always loved the idea of design for everyone, that made me sure I wanted to be a Designer in the 1st place. The IKEA Foundation represent to me all that I think is right with Design. The need driven creation, the way things are honed by necessity and how the knowledge of what you need and what you have to work with can result into something amazing. The IKEA Foundation gives people the opportunity to develop that, it gives people time and resource to be able to create and find solutions to their problems.
I come originally from Brazil and have extensive experience with volunteering and charity work since a very young age. I am passionate about communication and life improvements. I come from a multicultural background and life experience. I’d say my life goal is to make the world a better and prettier place. To make it an easier place to navigate and go about life. I truly believe that if we get together we can drastically improve the world. I want to inspire people, to bring the best version of themselves and to put it out there. I am honoured to be an ambassador for the Good Cause Campaign and a part of IWitness!
