Miguel Soares is a 24-year-old Portuguese boy, born and raised in Lisbon.
As much as his family and friends tried to convince him to play football to become like Ronaldo, he has always preferred books and videogames. That is why he is a big fan of the fantasy genre, which is why he has a nerd side that he likes to explore when he plays Dungeons and Dragons with his friends or when he plays computer games.
During his adolescence he has got a liking to practicing physical activities, therefore it is easy to find him at the gym. If you see him and he doesn’t speak to you, do not be offended, he is not ignoring you, he is just shy!
His passion for magic and the mysteries of small things led him to take great interest in Chemistry classes and later to apply for the Pharmaceutical Sciences course. During his course, he had the opportunity to enroll in Erasmus in Finland, where he had unforgettable experiences and plans on returning soon. It is said that even today, he has dreams with northern lights across the night sky, with the sleds led by huskies and skiing over frozen lakes.
After coming back to reality, he finished his studies in November and is now working as a project manager in the pharmaceutical industry and has great ambitions for the future.
As he loves aquatic creatures, he owns 2 freshwater turtles that he loves despite all the headaches they give him and they even try to be more gluttonous than their owner, but they can’t!
Who knows, you might find him at the gym working out or you might get lucky and be able to ask him some fantasy game tips?
