    Industrial engineering student in Life Sciences with an interest in the applications that can be impactful in medicine and climate.

    I enjoy being productive for Ambits after a hard day at school. I get my energy from drawing up to-do lists and ticking them off afterward. I meet a lot of interesting people and learn something new every day.

    To recharge my batteries, I love to walk or jog and enjoy nature. One of my dreams is to discover as much as possible about our globe and its beautiful nature.

    By getting older and getting to know myself better, I have realized that I am a perfectionist and have a hard time believing in myself and the things I can do. In the future, it will be essential to grow in this and be more assertive for the challenges that will still come my way.

    The more positive energy you throw into the universe, the more positive energy it gives you back.”
