Being Spanish, I studied and worked for a large part of my life in Spain and Germany. After my postgraduate in International Cooperation, I decided to trade in Sunny Barcelona for new adventures in Antwerp. Initially, I got to know Exchange as a volunteer and later on got the chance to make this engagement professional. As a project coordinator, I coordinated projects in different countries of Latin America and East Africa.

From this year onward I am the program manager for Uganda, a country with lots of entrepreneurship and potential. No doubt that, with the strong support of our South team and the numerous volunteers, this will be a success!

I often dream of an Exchange office in Madrid, but soon enough I realize that in the cold winter days of the Spanish city I would miss the warm Belgian stew with adapted Trappist beers.
