What do you like best in your job?

Since 1998 I have enjoyed every day of my mission, my work related to international education, the personal growth I’ve had and the achievement of our student’s goals. I have worked very harmoniously with my partners and staff, with the educational international institutions, with the counselors and principals of school and universities, with the students and their parents, and above all I’m very grateful to have supported thousands of students who have trusted me and Study Union to achieve their goals of studying abroad.

Your top priorities for 2022?

To promote the student mobility of Latin Americans to Europe, and specifically to France through a better understanding and consideration of higher education programs in France, both in French and English, as an excellent alternative for students who want to access quality study opportunities.


Why choosing FIGS Education?

After 23 years of experience in the field of international education I’m willing to undertake this new challenge in my life with the illusion and commitment to be able to continue with the mission of disseminating and facilitating the studies abroad opportunities for young people, adults and families. This is not a stop on my path or a change of course, it is the continuity of the mission that God has placed in my life.
