I first experienced working in a social entrepreneurship project at my 1st year in my engineering school. I worked in a project that aims to help women who master the art of making natural cosmetics launch their own business. Then I started a project of sensibilization to organ donation. I wanted to make a difference in my country and to encourage people to prevent kidney diseases and to donate organs when it's possile.
