Elga de Pina Fernandes
Nosagenda was founded by Elga de Pina Fernandes in the spring of 2018. As a native of Santiago in Cape Verde, she migrated to the Netherlands at the age of 14. Happily living in beautiful city Rotterdam she frequently missed her island and the connection with Capverdean community. This was one of the key motivators for the start of Nosagenda.
Ermelindo Leal Gonçalves
At the beginning of the project to create Nosagenda Magazine, Elga asked Ermelindo to join this beautiful initiative. Ermelindo is mainly involved in creating content of the magazine and sales & promotion. He is motivated by the idea to share stories about Cape Verde with the goal to inform and inspire others.
“Being a member of the Nosagenda team is great. As a volunteer I have always learned a lot of meeting new people with a different background and working together to realize ideological projects”.
Raisa Melo Fortes
Raisa interviewed Elga for her thesis on the traditional Cape Verdian dances and history. During theseconversations Raisa became inspired by Elga’s vision.
After graduating and working abroad in Cape Verde, teaching kids drama and directing plays, she reached out to Elga in 2019. Within the team, she assists with production of the team, so that the magazine can grow and inspire as many people as possible.
At a young age I started drawing and
painting with my uncle. This is where
my love for the creative industry starts to develop. At the age of 19 I moved to The Netherlands where I studied typo / graphic design at the media college Amsterdam.
After a lang journey searching for a way to give back what I’ve learned in my creative journey, I found Nosagenda who to me is the perfect fit to give back, inspire and get inspired by others. I join the team in 2019 and sinds we’ve been working hard to make Nosagenda the most inspiring magazine with Cabo Verde roots.
