”Success, is based on whether you are even trying and how much you are actually trying”

Ninth interview part one for the project YoungHumansOfScience where I try to interview people related to this field and understand their stories in order to close the gap between society and science.

Adam:What attracted you to your actual path?

I started in engineering, but that was more because of a family decision. When I was small I would have maybe liked to go with cooking, since I was young I cooked and it was one of the things I enjoyed. But they wanted me to go into engineering, so among all the different branches I chose the most general one, which was about industrial organization. 

With it I wanted to get a more general overview of the sector, and later I saw that I only liked to cook for those I loved so I wouldn’t enjoy it as a job now.

University is more similar to high school than you might have think at first, so it didn’t give me the change I was expecting.

I also saw during my studies that the difference between those who obtain money and those who don’t, is based on whether you are even trying and how much you are actually trying. So once I noticed that and due to many circumstances, I decided to start working in the real state sector.

By starting university and a job I also came to realize that life is harder than we imagine it before.

Adam:How did you start in real state?

At that time RBNB was looking for someone who spoke languages, so I decided to apply and was chosen for the position. Since then, I have working in the company for almost  3 years and now I know that so long as you work well you can keep climbing positions.

Now I work with around 70 apartments and I am in charge of contacting clients, planning of the workers and I deal with any unexpected situations we might face.

I also learned that working with clients specially in the touristic sector can be quite taxing, specially because while in the buying/selling part of it they have to be more responsible due to the amounts, in the case of the touristic ones they are more relaxed.

As I worked I also learned that we each have different things we excel at, and we should find them and polish them to be able to make the most of our situation. In my case the skill that I had was being able to find the fastest way to do something and act on it. Even if it is not the most efficient sometimes you have to act.
