I like to think of myself as a pursuer of true happiness. I am currently studying biotechnology in the beautiful city of Madrid, but the people I love are spread out across the world; I consider myself a bit of a globetrotter sometimes. I came here for a whole year as part of my original university’s “Study Abroad” program. Travelling has made me a better person: it has made me aware of people’s needs, and even made me realize how much my own culture and identity could grow. Being really passionate about art (dance, cinema, literature, and music) but wanting to dedicate my life to science has made my personality an interesting mixture. My biggest dream is to travel to Ireland and finally get to know the country, and also see Irish dancers performing live.
