Begoña

The whole situation is a roller-coaster of emotions. You are OK for a while and getting on with your life and then something comes up in the news and suddenly things become very real and the worry and anxiety start all over again.

Begoña came to the UK from Spain in 2004. She initially worked as a waitress but, thanks to her background in Economics and her knowledge of Spanish and English, was soon able to find a position in the international finance sector.  

A few years later she married an Englishman and in 2012 she gave birth to her daughter.

Begoña has worked for the same company, a global leader in branded lifestyle apparel, footwear and accessories, for over a decade, first on a customer service role for the Spanish market and now in a management position within the Finance department of one of the company's major brands.
