Share this story:

My name is Víctor Abanto and I was born in the city of Trujillo, in the department of La Libertad, Peru. I studied Biological Sciences in the specialty of Fisheries Biology and graduated in 2014 from the National University of Trujillo. A year later, I specialized in Integral Management Systems and development in ISO Standards. Thanks to the motivation from my teachers and family, I developed my thesis on a project evaluating Andean lagoons in our country. Years later, I was able to work in important entities and programs, always aiming at the improvement and progress of my country.

I migrated because I fell in love. When I traveled to Spain, I met my wife, Yennyfer. Today, we live in the city of Madrid, Spain, and we have a beautiful daughter. I was able to homologate my degree in Marine Biology and was able to finish a master’s in public administration. I work in an International Consulting and Engineering company and, recently, I was admitted to the Master of Sanitary Biology or Biotechnology at the Complutense University of Madrid.

What I miss the most about Peru is its Gastronomy, its music, the human warmth of our people, my family and my friends. In the future, I hope to be able to share with my country all the experience that I gained, since I know that we are in a period in which our beloved Peru needs better professionals. The love I feel for my country makes me want to be able to contribute for a better social and economic development.
