What makes you happy?
The sun, smiling people, my business.
What makes you angry?
Injustice and people who don’t value what they have.
Which are your best and worst traits?
That’s not for me to say it, but something I like about myself is that I know how to listen and to forgive. Of course, I have learned to do it and I think many people should make that decision too. My worst trait? Sometimes I worry too much about nonsense.
About your career
How and why did you create Nep?
How? With plenty of eagerness. And why? Because my vocation asked me to.
What do you like most about your job?
Watching how students come to Nep with such enthusiasm and the happiness they show when they start constructing sentences in English. It’s very gratifying.
Do you have any anecdote about your job?
So many! Coming to Nep is already an anecdote… I remember a day when someone came to ask for information and, as we speak in English in the academy, I asked her: Can I help you? And she said very slowly: Do you speak Spanish? I answered: “Been doing so all my life!” We had a great laugh because she was so nervous to have to speak in English that she thought I was a foreigner. And I precisely have a foreign appearance…hahaha
If Nep didn’t exist, what would you like to do for a living?
To create Nep!!
What would you do if you had a time machine?
I would travel to all the possible times.
If you could have a super power, which one would you choose and why?
I would choose to be able to make everyone happy because I don’t like unhappiness.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I would like to go everywhere in the world.
If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
Uff I would like to meet so many people….If I have to choose, I would say Nelson Mandela: he is someone I have thought a lot about lately due to an article about him. I find it fascinating how he managed to bring back together a whole country and how he was able to forgive his enemies instead of rebelling after having spent half of his life in prison. It’s a gesture to be imitated: forgiveness as a way of solving problems.
