I'm nineteen and I study International Relations at Complutense. This is my first year at university and it's amazing! I love going to university because there are a lot of interesting people and I can learn a lot. Actually, university is very different than high school. 

I have chosen International Relations because I love traveling and I want to know how the world works.

Moreover, if you study a degree, you can be a professional authentic. So, you can do a job that few people know to do.

I chose chemistry in college and university.

But after several years it became boring.

I was invloved in a research project and we were using very toxic chemicals, but no one was paying attention to our safety.

So I said "Someone should be responsible for the safety of the people working on this project."

I'm sure you know what happened next... the project leader told me to take care of safety.

So, I returned to college to study 'occupational health and safety', and I found it very interesting.

Later, after the project finished, I started to work as a safety consultant and trainer, and I did that work for 25 happy years.

Now that I am retired, I enjoy doing English language tutoring.


"Today, the average person changes jobs ten to fifteen times (with an average of 12 job changes) during his or her career."




It is better to do the work you love, than to do the work you don't like.

Money and income are not the important considerations.


Good discussion Leyla...

I made my Master's degree in 1985 and it was in Education.   It never paid off for me as after I earned it, I immediately knew I made a mistake and switched careers.
