University and youth associationism were the fundamental pillars of this period. During the week, I enjoyed the biology degree and during the weekends I focused on volunteering as an educator. To finish my degree I decided to go to Germany to join an internship. I was very lucky to be able to help out at the Max Planck chemistry and ecology instituted in Jena. It was without a doubt an unforgettable experience. It was at this time when I had to decide which passion mattered the most to me, education or science.
