Filipa (Elms BT2/9)

I’m Filipa and I’m here to help you settle in and support you in this new stage of your life.

Like many of you, I was not “born and bred” in Northern Ireland, I’m originally from a small archipelago located over 1,400 miles from Belfast called The Azores.

I have been in Belfast since 2016 and, despite loving living here, I know how hard it can be to be away from your friends and family whilst adapting to a new culture, especially for the first time in your life. Me and my colleagues from the Residential Life Team will do our absolute best to make sure that during this new chapter in your life you experience new things, meet new people and make memories that will last a lifetime!

If you see me around, don’t hesitate to say “Olá!”

Languages spoken: Portuguese, Spanish, English, French and a little bit of German and Italian Main interests: Travel, Sci-fi and Mystery Tv Shows, General Knowledge Tv Shows, LGBTQ+ Rights, Cats, DIY, Gardening, Gaming (PS4)
