In 2001, after high school graduation asa gift from my parents, they sent me to study English in London for a year. While living there had the chance not only to learn the language, but to travel, meet people from different parts of the world and to get my first job as a part-time Jr. Office assistant.
After comming back from the UK, in 2003 started studying a BA in modern Languages with the twist of a business minor; from which i graduated in 2008 with a bilingual English-Spanish, a fair communication level of italian, knowledge of administration, foreign exchange and cross-cultural communication.
Before graduation started to work as a freelance translator online and a few months later became the assistant of the international procurement manager of a big firm of electronic and household devices in Venezuela. Since then i felt in love with making business with China and everything that came after that was made in pro of persuing a career on this area, and if I was going to be in charge of international procurement and negotiation with foreign suppliers, i should have all the tools.
So I started to get more involved with everything that surrounded the import / export world, incoterms, international trading agreements, customs, foreign exchange, shipping, costs, business culture, marketing, blogging, social media and even learn the language of whom i was working with, and here I am now.
