They call me spontaneous, cheerful and enthusiastic (I say: "Don't be fooled by the photo, I have a lot of character and I'm a little crazy禄 馃榿).

Since I was little I was a staunch defender of lost causes and fighter against injustice .

The current, the events or the decisions themselves led me to work in nutrition, food safety y quality audits.

 

I was more or less settled and in line with what society marks us. But something was boiling inside me and the "crazy string" in me needed something more...something to contribute to the improvement of society from my profession.

 

I assumed that there would be nothing more rewarding than combining the life project with the job and live doing what I believed in.

 

Therefore, I left work and stability to delve into nutrition in cooperation and international health.

I could not imagine that that moment of illusion and change would last only a few weeks; life had a big setback in store for me: my father left us suddenly, without having a second to assimilate it.

I would be lying if I said it was easy...it was a time of great sadness, anguish and loneliness sought, but my mother pushed me to finish my studies and continue with my dreams and he, my father, somehow, and from somewhere that I don't know, he did too...

And voil脿! I kept rolling, in sorrow, in pain and without the certainty that I was doing the right thing. Now I know that I was not wrong. Keep moving on doesn't mean forgetting or that it doesn't hurt anymore, but accepting and integrating what happens to us. Since then, different events have been unleashed, some positive, others not so much, but all accompanied by strength, inspiration and desire to continue growing.

Travel, dance, read and music are my weaknesses; also ride a bike 馃毚鈥嶁檧锔 although an injury has been preventing me for some time now.

Academic-professional data
A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since I started studying Nutrition and Dietetics and Food Science and Technology. I was passionate about the idea of 鈥嬧媗earning more about food and its processes, and who knows, ending up in industry, a laboratory, etc.

 

It is curious, because, nowadays, the food industry and the laboratory do not particularly attract me.

I suppose that, as we develop, the priorities and principles change.

 

Now I think that each person has a very important role in building a fairer world and I consider that education, in any of its formats, is the driver for development and improvement of any society.

I imagine that is why I ended up bumping into teaching. Currently, I work as a teacher of the Nutrition-Health area of the International Ibero-American University (UNIB), belonging to the network of universities FUNIBER.

My first steps were in Clinical Nutrition, something that I have always combined with other jobs and that, in addition, I have tried to reinforce with various training, such as coaching and anthropometric measurements.

The most extensive work experience has been as Food Quality Auditor. Despite the subsequent professional turnaround, it is a time of which I am proud, since every well-used learning gives us value.

Research and languages 鈥嬧媓ave accompanied me along the way; the latter are my great passion, along with others such as discovering new places and cultures.

Without a doubt, the best experience was in Madagascar, first as a volunteer intern, then as Coordinator of the Health and Fight against Malnutrition Program (Coconut Water Foundation).

I consider the key skills to be working well in a team, having an awake, creative, resolute mind and adaptable to change, putting enthusiasm, passion and motivation in everything that one does and have the attitude right about things.

 

Today, I am doing a Doctorate in Public Health, not happy with the little time I had (who knows me knows what I'm talking about 馃檲).

So you can congratulate me or express your condolences鈥︷煒.
