In 2016, Carolina graduated from Escola Superior de Artes e Design of Matosinhos, Portugal, in Communication Design. Simultaneously, she worked as a photojournalist for

webmagazines, covering events such as concerts and music festivals. After working as a graphic designer for the company 'O Estúdio', she continued her studies in 2017, enrolling in the Master's Degree in Sound and Image at Universidade Católica Portuguesa, specialising in Cinema and Audiovisual.

As a final Master’s project, Carolina wrote, directed and edited the short film “Alvorada'. It tells the story of Vasco, who is exposed to his brother's extremist ideals, expressed through the National Socialist Black Metal genre. However, Vasco doesn't identify with the movement's nature and hides from his brother an essential aspect of his life, in order to avoid a fraternal break, while tracing the path of self-acceptance.
