We have been going through some very hard weeks due to COVID-19 and we will still have to go through some more, which is why, here at Alumni we wanted to take advantage of our monthly interview to showcase and thank the alumni who are working and fighting every day for this situation to end as soon as possible.

We are going to put a face to some of them during these weeks and we are starting with Cristina Ortega, former student of SEK-Alboran and doctor in Almería.

What year to what year were you at SEK and what years did you study?

I studied secondary school and baccalaureate at SEK-Alborán in Almería from 2002 to 2008.

What memories do you have of your time at SEK?

For me, the school has been fundamental both for my academic education and in making me the person I am today. My best memories from childhood and adolescence are related to school.

I remember the school, my teachers, and my experiences there with great fondness. Plus, I met my best friends there and today we are like family.

What did you go on to do when you finished your studies?

I finished my studies in 2008 and started studying Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine in Córdoba. Now I am doing the last year of residence at the La Inmaculada hospital in Huércal- Overa (Almería)

What made you want to be a doctor?

Since I was little, I knew that I wanted to be a doctor, at school they helped me know what I wanted to be and how to achieve my dream. I will always be eternally grateful to all the people who helped me become the person I am today, both professionally and personally.


Thank you very much to Cristina and to all the Alumni who work in healthcare for their efforts and bravery, but especially these weeks that are being so hard and intense.
