Could you briefly describe your current position?

I work at a chemist and I continue learning every day to be up to date with the latest advances in my sector…

It took a lot of hard work, effort and willingness to learn and work in this sector. When my placement period was about to end, my company tutor at the time, and now my boss, decided to hire me.

Looking back, what’s the most valuable aspect of your VET School experience?

The most valuable aspect is all the technical knowledge about active ingredients, homeopathy, phytootherapy but also information on work contracts. Teachers were really helpful and willing to solve all our doubts. .

Would you recommend your VET school to others? Why?

Sure. It is a great place to study with a nice vibe and good relationship between teachers and students delivering high-quality training.

Do you (or would you like to) stay in touch with your former VET School? How? Why?

Definitely, I would love to stay in touch although it is complicated when you start working.

Any role models in your profesional sector?

has to be María José Alonso Fernández , a spanish pharmaceutical scientist. She has greatly contributed to the development of nanostructures for the delivery of drugs and vaccines, so that they can reach the target organ quickly and safely.

What would be the next step in your professional career?

In the future I would like to professionally develop myself in some other field than tourism
