Regarding my computer knowledge I feel proud of studying in my university,
since I have learnt not only many of the technologies and languages used nowadays, but also
I have acquired the capability of learning new technologies fast and incorporating them to my
daily work. Thereby, I have knowledge about PHP, MySQL, Python, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, and
most of the technologies used in Web Programming and on line database systems.

On the other hand, as I am volunteer since 2000, I have
a good knowledge about youth associationism and tools to promote it. Besides, I have participated

future since I would like to aim my career to international development cooperation.
