Native or Bilingual
Currently, I am doing an internship at the academic department of the Culinary Institute of Barcelona, studying for a degree in international relations at UOC, and training as a feminist coach in I chose to study for a bachelor’s degree in Tourism, from 2010 to 2014 in Alicante (Spain); that degree allowed me to delve into languages, history, society, and cultures. However, my curious mind was more really into the unknown, the essence of life, and suddenly the world was extremely attractive for me; I wanted to explore all by myself. Due to my thirst for knowledge, and as part of my university goals, I began to travel every time I could along those 4 years. In 2012, I undertook a student exchange programme (Erasmus) at Sheffield Hallam Sheffield (UK), where I met people with different cultural backgrounds, histories, dreams, and beliefs. After that experience, in 2013 already, I went to Sichuan, in middle China for another exchange programme. Then, I started to focus on awakening my creativity so as I began to work as a singer in a bar at night, giving English lessons during few days in kindergarten meanwhile I attended university for my tourism studies and to take Chinese lessons. That two full years were very rewarding and very significant in my career path. I discovered part of Asia, another way of living, totally contrast cultural shock from us, but with the same smiles, same worries maybe, same humanity as any other human being on Earth. Living in China is a life lesson for any “western”, you learn what a big community really means, and probably that happiness is not so much about achieving external goals, but about letting things flow. From 2014 to 2017 I was working in different tourist private companies in Spain, so I could get professional skills regarding administrative tasks, service customer, economic tasks, accountability, communication skills, service goals orientation, daily tasks as well as general duties from receptions in hotels and properties. Eventually, I never give up on my education, so I did some language studies on my own or with private teachers in fields that I liked the most, such as Chinese, philosophy, feminism, marketing communication skills, entrepreneurial culture, etc. In early 2017 I went back to China with the Chinse Government Scholarship, and I continued to study the Chinese language, history, and culture, this time in Shanghai. In September 2017 I decided to start another bachelor’s degree: international relations studies at Open University of Catalonia, in which I can study areas of my interest now, such as politics, economy, law, social science and international cooperation. Between 2018-2019 I took a few months for volunteering with the website workaway, and I worked as an au-pair for a Moroccan family, and I did some general tasks in hostels or hotels in other countries. In Germany, I contacted a Syrian refugee association, and I gave a hand with the content website (they needed someone to translate into Spanish) but I mainly was getting to know the Syrian families and their stories. In recent years, my interest was undoubtedly linked to Arab culture and countries, and my professional life changed when I had the opportunity to work in Qatar for the Economic and Commercial office of the Embassy of Spain in 2019. With that, I had a real insight into the politics and business world. I worked for many Spanish companies that wanted to open a business there, I made reports for official authorities and I conducted many meetings and projects between Spanish partners and Qatari companies. During that time, I travelled to the Middle East, which introduced, among other things, the dark side of women situation in those countries, their roles in communities, family, society, and religion. After Qatar, I went back to Spain and worked in a tourism office as a tourism technical assistant, so I managed to work with App created by the office for that summer with Covid19, as well as daily managed some tourist activities, orientation to visitors, etc.
