@thecriolamum: What is a successful moment in your career so far?

I am Criola picure

The most successful moment in my career was when I directed the documentary “I am Criola”. I travelled to the Cape Verde Islands for the first time, and I filmed the journey of meeting the homeland and my relatives. It was successful not because I received International awards. It was successful because for the first time of my life I felt free, to be just Cristina, to create, to explore and to feel unapologetically as a proud African woman without being judged and fighting for acceptance.
