Ms. Laura Pérez
Regional Projects Officer
Association: Fefarmex, Mexico

Since I started to be a pharmacist I found an incredible world and honestly this is an wonderful experience because I discovery new ways to improve the public health and involve in experimental sciences.

Además, he aprendido a desarrollar diferentes habilidades de manera personal y profesional. He recorrido muchos lugares desde las orillas de la península hasta América latina. Me encanta mi carrera porque ayudó a los demás, les brindo orientación, hago experimentos y aunque sea difícil lo consigo.

Heute und morgen werden wir pharmazeutische sein.
