I have worked in different fields over the years. In fact, even if two degrees are both in science I have always experiments other type of jobs. I have worked as waitress, sales, au pair, cleaning lady, promoter. I have also lived and worked in USA and Canada, before moving to Stockholm to complete my education. I love to be surrounded by people from different cultures and background, that is why I like so much to live abroad and I am not scared to move and face new challenges.
