QUESTION: Why did you choose to study Comprehensive Design and Image Management and not another degree?

ANSWER: I liked various types of design: product design, graphic design, interior design... I found this degree and saw that it covered more or less all the areas that interested me.

Q: What memories do you have of your passage through it?

A: I don't have particularly good memories of the last year of the pandemic, it was a bit complicated. On the other hand, the race was not very well organized, there would be aspects that could be improved. Although I was really only physically two years at the University and two more years during the pandemic.

Q: What do you highlight the most or what do you value most about your university stage at URJC?

A: What I liked the most was the collaboration in the classes of the associate professors since they are working in companies and can give you a perspective of the real world of design. In addition, to be able to tell you about their experiences.

Q: Would you change anything about your time at URJC?

A: At the time I spoke with the coordinators of the degree, regarding the organization of the contents of some subjects, since subjects overlapped and others such as computer science were missing.

Q: Was it easy to find a job after finishing your studies?

A: It was not difficult to find a job. I got it thanks to the practices of the race.

Q: How do you imagine yourself professionally in five years?

A: I really like sustainable design and interior design. I am currently in an NGO and in the future I would like to dedicate myself to something related to architecture and collaboration, which is why I would like to study a Master's Degree in International Cooperation next year. At the moment I do not value studying it at the URJC since they do not offer it.

Q: Tell us more about your project in the NGO

A: I did my TFG on menstrual hygiene and on a kit for Tanzanian girls with sustainable products and information on this topic.

Together with other girls from the University of other degrees, we signed up for the URJC call for cooperation projects, which they finally granted us. In August we went to Tanzania with the NGO Rafiki Projects For Development where we held workshops and talks for women, among other activities, with our project: Mwezi Kit.

Currently, we have some economic difficulties, which we hope to solve soon.

Q: As an Alumni of the URJC, what advice would you give to students who are finishing their studies at this university?

A: My recommendation is that you choose your internship very well and don't be in a hurry to do it. It is better to wait a bit and choose a company that you like and that is worth it.
