Hugo Gonçalves the Sweet Boy of January

Hugo Gonçalves, a 22-years-old-boy, born in Lisbon although he lives in the area of Barreiro. He studied bakery after finishing his secondary, yet he doesn’t work as one, for he has become vegetarian and he refuses to use animal products.

Nowadays, he works in LIMBO, a plants and ceramics store, in Madragoa, and to keep himself occupied he also works on a call center.

He loves nature and plants. As he says, it´s hard when you work in plant store! Back in 2015, he created an online group about Cacti and Succulents, aimed for Portuguese people to share their passion and photography.

He loves to read, specially fairy tales, fiction and some biographies. Likes to listen to rock and metal music and enjoys meeting new people and be with his friends. Although he is very selective when it comes to new relationships.
