Spanish girl. Love being outdoors, the sea, the mountains and challenges!

I moved to the UK 2 years ago and I’ve already watched all episodes of Doctor Who!
I enjoy sports that are challenging, the last training course I joined was aerial silks and it’s been over 6 months already!
I am in love with the sea, when I was younger I used to sail with my father and I also have surfed a bit! I also like the mountains and love the snow, going snowboarding whenever I have a chance!
Finding ways of taking care of our beaches and coastline
Civil engineer specialised in ports and coastal design. I help fishermen to get their boats protected from the fierceness of the ocean. I help in the fight against climate change protecting our shore villages against floods. And I also provide solutions for creating new ports and facilities where sustainability and environment are the first thing to think about.
