How was the second Erasmus experience? As I was recovering I managed to get better before what was expected, 2 months before and as I was about to get stuck without doing anything for half a year because of what we had planned, I decided to go for another Erasmus, this time to Turin.

Did you already believe before? I wasn’t exactly agnostic but I didn’t believe in anything. Before I did have a few experience close to »God» but I didn’t give them weight.

What made you follow this path? The desire to live. Desire to travel, to try different things, I thought that going with the path of bachelor, master, PhD was missing my youth or at least not making the most of it. This is the best time of our lives so I wanted to make the most of it. How did you develop this point of view? I am sure it had to do with how I grew, but I can’t…

Science is the tool that has let us change the world

How did you end in the field you are working in? It kind of just happened. When you chose the bachelor at 18 you have no idea, you kind of hear what others who are older said but you don’t really understand what it means and they try to sell all the bachelors, specially the scientific ones, they idealize them too much.

Where would you like to end? Once I finish the master I might be able to tell you better, but for now the position I am interested in is one related to pharmacoeconomy, because I enjoy economics and see the impact of the new drugs on the health of the patient as well as on the healthcare system.
