We are launching products to market and we need to be more responsible with these decisions and the impact they carry. Understanding our own context is essential and achieving globalized products is necessary, but at the same time, we must have respect for our environment. The social component defines my work. I like to apply technology to the development of successful products in a coherent context. \"
