Stella Hiroki was born in 1988 at Cascavel-Paraná, far away from big urban areas in Brazil. Her passion for knowledge and cultures motivated her to visit 43 countries, speaking fluently Portuguese, English and French, also to learn japanese.
All this experience instigated creatively her career. As a curator of urban initiatives around the world that improved cities reality and engaged citizens to participate of their cities, she is a reference of Smart City Research in Brazil and also, an advocate for Women perspective in Tech Projects and Urban Planning.
She created the Smart City Talks channel by her background in Media and International educational experience associated to the lack of Smart City content addressed for young generation. By interviews from MIT professors, Colombia's Architects to Brazilian Housing Activists she inspires brazilian young urbans that they can create their own projects to redesign their cities.
