I am passionate about

Actions

Having been educated in a catholic school which runs charity programs in underdeveloped places in all 5 continents, I am conscious of poverty problems since I was young. I've been contributing with the running of supporting campaigns from age 8. Aa a student, I helped my colleagues understand school and university lessons and prepare for exams. I also gave support classes to children in need. I've taken many courses abroad because I find exchanging viewpoints with people from from different cultures very enriching. I have the hability to emphasize with individuals, so usually even the most closed-minded and shy colleagues have opened-up with me and discovered the way of living of us, Europeans. I used to organize activities after the courses, so that everyone could meet in a more relaxed atmosphere. This has been very possitive to all of us, but it's been crucial to the colleagues coming from underdeveloped countries, changing lots of the aspects of their lives back home. At university I used to help incoming erasmus students find a place and get to know Spanish people. I also promoted the exchange of study-plans through a dedicated platform hosted in the cloud and through dedicated sessions where people interested in studying in a university got advice from former erasmus students. Having started as an Intern in Telefonica, together with over 400 colleagues, I was one of the promoters of weekly after-work meetings, very beneficial to our networking and success at work.
