When I was a child, I always had a fertile imagination and one of the things I enjoyed the most was playing with robots and gather some cardboard boxes and "build" machines. As a teenager, I had no clue what kind of job I wanted in my adulthood, then I remembered my childhood and decided to follow the mechanical engineering path. Today, I am working at one of the greatest automobile company of the world, where I can work with real production machines and be directly involved on the improvement of those machines. Currently, my main goal and dream is to move to Japan and work there as a Mechanical Engineer.
