What could you eat every single day and never get tired of it?
Empanadas. And cheese. Not necessarily together, but that works too.
What’s on the top of your bucket list?
Traveling to as many countries as I can. But maybe before that, learning another language… Italian?
When you’re not busy making chemistry for our clients, what do you enjoy doing in your free time?
My happiest moments are when I’m with my family and friends. Couple that with traveling to different places, and I’m one very happy girl!
