“I realized that this was not what I liked. To have continued was to continue four more years with something that neither motivated nor seduced me. And above all, I’m glad because that was accompanied by the decision to devote myself one hundred percent to music and to pursue that dream. I remember that my parents, as it would have happened to others, the news hit them a bit like a bucket of cold water, but they always supported me. They told me to go for it, but that I had to train,” said Ubago.
