I was born and raised in Seville, Spain. After finishing compulsory school, I enrolled at a
vocational training course in business studies, and afterwards I joined the University of Seville for Business Administration Studies.
Eventually, I dropped out of university and proceeded to work. At the time, I didn’t speak any English and couldn’t do so until I was 28. I started to learn the language through an intensive home course, through the use of a CD, over a month long period. I had always wanted to go on a University exchange, however, I thought that I was already too old to do something like this.
Nevertheless, when I turned 31, I decided to travel to Cambridge for a year in order to learn English at an advanced level (C1). Once I arrived, I started working for two companies, where I cleaned and did hospitality for about 80 to 90 hours a week.
After three months, a friend of mine in Cambridge informed me about World Study Solutions. I met Gianfranco Cuccaro, Head of International Services, and he was really helpful. He supported me in my effort to join Anglia Ruskin University to continue the degree that I hadn’t finished at the University of Seville.
This was a three-year degree in International Business Management. While my English skills were still at an Upper Intermediate (B2) level, I was lucky enough to find a job as a Business Office Administrator. At the end of my time living in England, my skill set had vastly improved and I was speaking at an advanced level.
Following this period, I found a job in Brussels, Belgium, working for the European Commission as a Financial Officer. I continued to work here for nine years, until the end of 2019, in order to come back to Seville, Spain.
I can say that the twelve years I lived abroad have been the best years of my life, by far. It was a trip full of learning, adventures, experiences, travels, and meeting interesting people from around the world! Travelling is one of my passions! Since 2006 I have visited over 40 countries and I’m always looking to explore even more.
Currently, I work for World Study Solutions as an International Studies Consultant and I advise anyone at any age to go abroad to learn languages, study at a school, or achieve a university degree. I guarantee you will not regret it at all! Come to World Study Solutions and let us advise you and, also, give you any detailed information you may need.
