Once I got my degree I had my mind made up, I wanted to be a firefighter! During my summer holidays, while studying I would take part in the summer forest prevention campaigns. In Sabadell, Vic or Torello I would live the life of a firefighter in summer, not only going to put out fires, but going with them to any kind of service they had to attend in order to learn as much as possible, even though I couldn’t take part actively. After 3 tries at the entry examination I finally made it and became the 5th woman to be a professional firefighter, in a corpse that now has over 3000 members.
In 2007 she decided to try to get into the elite GRAE (Special activities Support Group, is the local equivalent to a search and rescue firefighter). After the written exam, and many physical exams, she finally landed a place that introduced her to the world of mountain rescues as a specialist professional firefighter. Since then she lives and works for the mountain and is totally happy about it, although some of the helicopter rides she’d rather forget.
