In 2008 she enrolled the Conservatório de Música do Porto in Cecília Fontes' singing class. During her studies she participated and won several singing competitions, which led her to finish her musical studies in Porto with honors. Simultaneously, she graduated her bachelors degree in Biology in Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade do Porto. After moving to Brussels (Belgium), she graduated her bachelors and masters degrees in singing with honors, in the class of Dina Grossberger and Dinah Bryant in Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.
