Where are you from and where are you in?
I am Spanish, specifically from Bilbao, a beautiful city in the north of Spain and I currently living in Paris.
What have you learned during this 2020?
Many things, among which I highlight being with myself and knowing how to enjoy that.
Did you get to learn something new?
I am learning French little by little and I notice that I am becoming more and more fluent in the language.
Were you able to travel and work overseas during 2020? Did you have to cancel any job opportunities?
The truth is that I've worked abroad and at the beginning, it's clear that it imposes the fact that you don't know what you're going to find, but I really have to say that all the jobs I've gone to fulfilled to perfection all the hygienic and security measures.
What is the place you want to visit once the world gets back to normal?
I would love to go to Petra.
Use three words that describe best the shoot you did with Mathieu?
Calm, Inspiring and Cozy.
Do you have a green thumb? Do you have some house plant? A little vegetable garden?
I have a small Bonsai which I care for very lovingly.
What is your earliest memory with a flower in it?
I always remember the small garden that my aunt created on her terrace every summer with a great variety of different flowers and many colors.
What is your favourite flower?
Orchids are my favorite.
What would be the worst type of flowers someone could ever offer you?
Red Roses, although I can't say I don't like them I think it's very unoriginal…
What have you started doing this year to help to fight climate change?
I have completely reduced the use of plastic, whether in bottles, bags, drinking straws etc.
