The greatest difficulty, however, was the lack of educational and professional guidance. I had to learn a lot of things the hard way before aligning my career and pursuing my goals. I was even rejected for a position as a sales representative in a national pharmaceutical company due to the color of my skin. Despite this, I studied Economic Sciences and joined BMS, where I have been for over 15 years.
I began as an intern, moved up to sales representative and manager, worked in marketing, took a sabbatical to accomplish an exchange program, got a master’s degree in Administration and, for the last two and a half years, I have been a member of the strategy and operations directorate. Today, I can join my educational background in economics, my passion for politics, my master’s degree in the third sector, experience in commercial field work and experience in marketing to contribute to the company's strategy.
