As the author describes in one of her poems, "Ser Português"
Ser português é viver,
Com a saudade latente no peito,
Por um passado histórico grandioso,
Que nos faz orgulhar e encher de respeito.
Ser português é sofrer,
Com pequenas coisas e expressar-se de forma exagerada.
É o dramatizar das coisas simples da vida,
E vivermos intensamente com a pessoa amada.
Ser português é vibrar, acreditar, gritar.
É ser campeão no mundo das vivências,
Carregando um campeonismo,
Que a genética coletiva introduziu sem contingências.
