First of all, how does a day in the life of the Spanish Forum Manager at FXStreet look?
Well it’s like a… roller coaster! 😀 Seriously speaking, there are days when there’s low activity and days when a lot of users decide to ask questions about Forex or some of them decide to start a quarrel for any insignificant reason and you have to intervene and ban a user. At the end, that means that you’re 24/7 watching the forum to avoid any conflict and help users.
Today we want to present you one of our most veteran members: Vicky, who is in charge of the Spanish web area and Webinars. On this interview, she explains to us how it has been her journey on FXStreet and how traveling and cinema play an important role in her free time.

First of all, how does a day in the life of the Community Manager at FXStreet look?
I wake up at 5:20 AM, quite British I know, because I live in Blanes, a sea town that is one hour and a half by train. I like to have breakfast, and especially drinking a big cup of coffee, and that’s why I prefer to wake up early to have time enough to take the train. When I arrive at the office I check my emails and I start working on my marketing duties, such as reports and leads, because I’m Marketing Assistant as well.

I have insomnia problems and when I can’t sleep I start working. Depending on the hour, I try to sleep again but if I don’t succeed, I go to the office. At the office, I invest my time in meetings, reading new and useful information and working on Excel sheets. Nowadays, I rarely program 🙁
