What do you do?
I am doing a MSc in Additive manufacturing.
Why did you choose this field?
I have been passionate about engineering and space since I was a child, I remember in elementary school, instead of following lessons, I created little devices. At the end of high school I understood that I wanted to become an engineer, and afterwards I would pursue the space field. I wasn't good at math, I wasn't good at physics, I was good at psychology and philosophy, but I tried anyway. it was difficult, but I had tenacity, and I did it. I have not yet arrived where I want to go, but what my parents have taught me is that I can do and become what I want, I am a woman, strong enough!

I would like to improve the research, the life on earth, the evolution of technology.
Best advice for next generation?
