Her exceptional ability to foster meaningful stakeholder relationships is underscored by her collaborations with renowned brands such as Coca-Cola and Instagram. Aline's commitment to professional excellence led her to graduate summa cum laude from the Masters in Sports Ethics and Integrity (MAiSI) program in 2022. Her academic journey culminated in a thesis centered on the sustainable development of women's football. Currently, Aline is a dedicated advocate and educator, driven by her primary goal of making sports integrity matters more accessible to a wider audience.
