I was born in Barcelona but I’ve always felt like a citizen of the world. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to live in various different countries from a very young age. I don’t mean that I visited as a tourist, but rather that I had the privilege of living with local people, sampling local cuisine made by housewives and living as a resident in each of these countries. Despite the fact that I was always made to feel very welcome, there was a part of me that couldn’t help feeling like ‘an odd duck’ who spoke and behaved differently to everyone else. Even so, all of these experiences helped me to grow and develop both as a person and on a professional level.
