Alumna - Policy Advisor at the Peruvian National Parliament in Lima, Peru

After a very demanding but incredibly enriching year of studies at EUR, I went back to my country, Peru, in order to continue my career in the public sector. This time, with a whole new perspective about how to deal with complex governance problems, which I was eager to apply for the benefit of my country. Luckily, I was able to reinsert myself quickly into the labour market. First as an external consultant for a government office. Just a few months later, I obtained my current position. These days, I work as a staff member of the Peruvian Parliament where I am part of a team which main duties are to analyse and develop law proposals related to small and medium-sized enterprises in Peru.  


I am convinced that the high quality of the education in the Netherlands, and particularly at Erasmus University, has allowed me to strengthen my profile as a policymaker. It has enabled me to acquire the tools to solve complex problems and to successfully manage governance networks. I would absolutely recommend this programme to anyone interested in developing a career related to solving complex societal problems not only in the public sector but beyond.
