I would like to work in a creative industry, but where I can continue learning and putting in internship all the knowledge acquired in the degree program.

6. What committee would you give to current PPE students?

Anyone who studies PPE has an open mind and a desire to see the world. To all of them, I would tell them not to be afraid to have different experiences during their college years, both inside and outside class, to discover what they are really passionate about. Once they know that, they should have the courage to follow that dream and do it accompanied by the people they have met or will meet at the University of Navarra. In that sense, studying at this University is a privilege: personally, I have never been with so many good people in the same place, at the same time. At final, I would encourage you to take advantage of all the experiences you can have during these years and to value highly the friendships and relationships you will forge during this time.
