Susana Franco began by attending the History course at the University of Lisbon and worked in the real estate industry for ten years, but the lack of accomplishment in her life made her decide to travel to India and Africa.
Concerned with extreme poverty in some African countries and poor access to education for children in Africa, Susana has committed to raising funds for SAMA, a gender equality NGO.
This involvement led her to scale Mount Kilimanjaro and to become involved in the creation of a Foundation (H.E.A.R.T.) sponsoring children's access to pre-primary education in Uganda. The author also embarked on a spiritual restructuring journey to India and Southeast Asia. Along the way she met an Indian guru who radically changed her view of life. After that she attended two courses in India to become a yoga instructor and lived temporarily in Japan in a temple with followers of Zen, a segment of Buddhism. This experience inspired her to write her second book: The Girl of Zen.
Currently, Susana is a Yoga instructor as a therapy of energy and mind harmonization. Yoga and meditation are part of her daily routine, such as writing about spirituality. She believes that we should always follow the heart, for it is the messenger of the soul, and that every soul is a piece of the Divine here on Earth: we all have enough power to change our reality.
