I am offering myself to volunteer because of the fact of sharing and giving knowledge I've acquired through many years studying and working experience to others might give many individuals the chance to improve their lives. Also I feel I can help institutions setting up programmes for the same purpose. Sharing and giving is a maximum in my thoughts and the way I live.

I've been a teacher of Spanish as a second language several years ago in the UK, teacher of English as a second language not so many years ago in Spain and recently I've been working in the field of software translation. I've lived in Italy, UK and Canada (QuÃ©bec and Ontario) as well as in my native Spain. I hold an MA in Social Anthropology, another one in Translation Studies and a BA in History of Art. I'm keen to meet committed people who are aware of vulnerability in any form and want to do their share to improve social justice.
