Neus Montserrat

"It has been an enriching experience on a professional and personal level since you are in contact with people who have very different backgrounds to you. As everyone has the same objective, you can assist each other and contribute unique knowledge. Just as I did, you will learn many things that will properly prepare you to start a long-term successful career."
