The experience was great , not only because I have learned things completely outside my comfort zone, but experienced new country, being away from family and friends, learned a lot from their amazing culture, respect and commitment. It was an incredible adventure at the end... plus I made money !
I worked for an industry that makes exhausts and valves for Toyota Corolla.
At the beginning I worked with presses and robots and then move to a more challenging step, working with precision manual welding.
But when i get back to my country, my career took a completely different path - into finance
