Juan Carlos Ceballos Torres was born in Sevilla, Spain. He joins the Catholic University as a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Modern Languages, Spanish language program, and at the same time, he is studying his masters in Hispanic Literatures and Cultures. He earned his Bachelor’s degree from the Complutense University of Madrid in Optometry and previously worked as an optometrist in Spain and most recently in Kenya, where he was working for two years (2016 - 2018).
