Each month, the AIAS highlights the outstanding dedication and accomplishments of one of its members. The Chapter Leader of the Month can be a Chapter President or any member who has shown tremendous leadership.



My name is Milena Carvalho, I’m 23 years old and I’m the current president of the AIAS SENAI CIMATEC chapter, located in the city of Salvador, Brazil, South America. I’m in my 4th year of graduation, about to graduate. I’m so grateful for everything I have learned from being a member of AIAS, and I’m so happy for all of our accomplishments as such a new chapter.

In 2022, five other colleagues and I decided to start our activities, and now we have approximately 30 members. Our first activity was our Podcast called “ArqTec Podcast” available on Spotify, we always are doing workshops, competitions, projects, and also bigger events like our “Architecture Week” open to the public. After another year on this team I couldn’t be more grateful and happy for all.




Fiona’s color of choice is  Hancock Green (117). She chose this color because “green is my favorite color so I choose one that is soft and clear”
