A decision that had a huge impact on your life
The most important and most impactful decision in my life took place in 2006 when I decided to take on an international career and experience new realities, cultures and working methodologies. This decision led me to live and work in countries as different as Spain, where I was for 8 years and Brazil, where I have been for the last 9 years.
