Bachelor in Veterinary Medicine
Since childhood I have had a great passion for nature and science, I always wanted to be a veterinarian. During my first year at university, I decided to dedicate my life to conserving nature and to use all my knowledge, time, and resources to help the planet. I feel a deep connection with nature and my life is absolutely linked to it, all time I am thinking about how I can contribute to its protection and I have infinite ideas and projects in my mind that I hope to fulfill in a not too distant future. I am a veterinarian student close to graduation from the Universidad de Chile and I want to continue with postgraduate studies. My academic experience has been closely related to wildlife, I have worked in research projects, I have developed in the field of rehabilitation of marine and terrestrial animals, where I have strengthened my knowledge in management and medicine wildlife. The rehabilitation and rescue of marine animals is one of my great passions, which is why I have been working voluntarily with South American sea lions for two years. A few months ago, together with a great team, we managed to create the Foundation for the Conservation of Nature, to actively protect the ecosystems of our country, share our knowledge and bring communities closer to science.
