HELLO! My name is María José Díaz Domínguez, I am 20 years old, from Las Palmas. I am currently pursuing 3rd year of Graphic Design at the EASDGC, when I finish I would like to specialize in the field of typography. When I’m working, I am a methodical person who likes to be organized following the steps set out and I’m also very dutiful. I usually take the lead in group work and I’m never satisfied with the first option presented to me. I am very ambitious both in the professional field and personal and when I set a goal I have to accomplish it. If I had to name one of my defects it would be perfectionism. On many occasions it’s a good thing, but sometimes I take it to the limits. I love working in groups, I think they are enriching experiences in which you can always learn something new.
