Oh, my list is full! I never stop dreaming. But work in the US would be a good one.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
J.K. Rowlling, because she wrote Harry Potter. Enough for me, I love her books so much.

Graduated, doing what I love to do, and with the people I love!
What do you think of the Social Media?
I think that’s a good distraction, and a great work platform for many people. But it also can be a problem, when it changes from a distraction to a fake life.
