About this submission

As a foreigner, I'm constantly juggling to maintain a balance between two lives -my career in New York and my friends and family in Madrid. I often feel that such balance is impossible to attain. Would an obsessive focus on my professional future deteriorate my most precious relationships? Is the pursue of an Artis Visa reason enough for me not to accompany a loved one during a time of need?

Taking inspiration from a variety of experiences that me and others in my situation have lived, Quique addresses these questions and explores the conflicts that arise from them.
