ANA FREIRE, making the woman who “Wisibiliza”s women visible herself

Last 16th of May I attended the Ada Byron Awards 2019 to the female technologist in its 6th edition, which was also the opening of the 7th edition of ForoTech.

The Ada Byron Award to the Technologist Women, pioneer at a national level (and which has gone international with this year’s presentation of the Mexican edition), was instituted by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Deusto. Its goals are: to reward and raise awareness of the excellent journey of technologist women of today; to enrich society with technology-diffusing events; to promote technological vocations (especially of women) approaching the technological work to young people; and to make the importance of technology socially visible.

The thing is that on that day I was able to meet the winners of the Ada Byron award: two exceptional women who are a role model in the technology world, Concepción Alicia Monje Micharet and Ana Freire (chosen Youth Ada Byron Award by unanimity). The jury had it more difficult than other years since there were around 112 candidates, active professionals in the academic and business world in the fields of engineering, informatics, chemical sciences, physics and mathematics. The candidates were between 36 y 67 years old, and between 24 and 36 for the Youth Award.

Today I want to talk to you more about Ana Freire, rewarded with the Youth Ada Byron Award, do you want to know why? You just have to keep reading.

Those that, as one of the protagonists of today, say that when you start your business you have to know that more than the launching of successful start-ups,

“being entrepreneur means being cold in the street, because although it might be your passion, it’s not easy”. (more…)

Terai: from playing with cosmetics to looking after our outside and inside

Serenity, tranquility, relax, trust and naturality is what the protagonist of today’s post has been transmitting since I met her. I’ve been after her for a while and finally, a few days ago, we had the opportunity to talk calmly.

I encourage you to know another entrepreneurial woman who believes that permanent training and research are necessary, and who aims for the benefits of nature for our health. Of course, with a scientific base. (more…)

A new vitamin, the C from creative

On the 10th of January of 2019 I attended the presentation of a new book about creativity written by two people who opt for creativity and innovation. I was quite interested not only because of the topic, but, above all, because one of the authors is an E.P. whom I already talked about in 2016 when we launched the second edition of the mentoring program MET Community in Bilbao.

I invite you to discover who I’m talking about and which is the book I’m referring to.
