In 1992, the year of the Barcelona Olympics, I left the Autonomous University of Barcelona with a postgraduate degree in interpretating hot off the press, ready to spread my wings and explore the world of interpretation. The Olympic Games were precisely my first chance to catch a glimpse of the distinguished professionals who would later become my mentors in this fascinating learning journey that our profession brings to us.
Then came six years of work in Geneva, where I came of age as a professional serving at international organizations such as the UN, the ILO or the International Telecommunications Union. Later, back in Barcelona, I was able to apply what I had learned from acomplished colleagues and find my own spot in the local market. And, after having tasted the pleasures of living in various countries, I learned the meaning of East, West, home’s best.
