Mara Viveros begins her interview by saying, "my initial training was as an economist but I later became an anthropologist, I like to mention this because it also explains who I am, that is, a person I have been seeking. I started with anthropology, I developed an undergraduate thesis on female flower vendors, and the day I was defending my work they said to me: this is economic anthropology. I felt happy because they had already marked a path for me, I became an anthropologist, I traveled to France and I studied sociology first and then anthropology. What interested me about anthropology was the anthropology of the body, of health, of sickness, and always, the question of gender".
