What is the best thing that I love about my work?
What I love the most is to discover new inspiring brands, and trying to be partners with small ones which don’t distribute in Spain, in order to grow together. I also love to meet inspiring people and share experiences with them; it makes me so happy when I see their exciting faces while they are in the truck. And last but not least, having the opportunity to travel anywhere and spend some time discovering new cities.
What is my idea of perfect happiness?
Go sailing in a sailing boat while enjoying nature and the feeling of freedom. Waking up in a small deserted bay, seeing the sun shining on the water, taking a dip and then having the time to have a great breakfast while music is playing and I’m enjoying an exceptional book.
What is my greatest fear?
The death of my loved ones. Death is something that unsettles me since I was a little girl, and knowing that we will disappear at some point is something that I can’t handle.
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself?
Being so perfectionist. It drives me to stressful situations and it isn’t very healthy. On the other hand, being that way also gives you the opportunity to be where you had never imagined. Having a dream and working to achieve it is the basis to be motivated.
