I'm the youngest of the team. I have studied Mechanical Engineering although I had always wanted to have my own clothing store. After a while working in sectors that did not fill me, I gathered the courage to launch myself to carry out what I had always wanted. Self-knowledge and personal growth have offered me the opportunity to give shape to an enriching project, of value and future.

I studied Industrial Engineering, but I did not finish it: something told me that my future was going in a different direction. I am an entrepreneur from birth and one of my great passions is to collaborate with ecological and social projects. Working at VELVET BCN offers me the opportunity to transform my environment by cooperating to improve society and bringing sustainable consumption to the greatest number of people.

I have had time for my life to go around a lot. For childcare training, I have worked most of my life in my parents' family restaurant. I have been a receptionist, cook at a school and stop. Now I work with my children because if someday I have grandchildren I want them to find a better world . I think that little by little a new, more open and respectful perspective has been established.

I'm an IT Engineer and I've always worked as a programmer. I would never have thought about having my own business. Taking the time to discover what I wanted in my life has made me stronger and more secure in my decisions. Being part of VELVET BCN has taught me that with patience and positivism I can offer much more than "zeros and ones".
