"Sailing is not only the art of knowing how to adapt to the forces of nature, but also of knowing how to use them to your advantage."
Olimpia López, Spain
- Program studied
Olimpia is currently in her 4th year of the Bachelor in Business Administration at IE University. She was born in Barcelona, but spent the first four years of her life living on a boat. She then moved to Madrid, and spent all of her summers, until she was 14 years old, sailing around the Mediterranean and competing in numerous sailing championships. Since she began studying at IE University, Olimpia has discovered many other passions such as online gaming (e-sports)—a field in which she will start an internship with a club in January—, playing rugby at the Olímpico de Pozuelo Club, and surfing, which has led her to create IE’s very own Surf Club.
“IE University has reinforced my belief in how hard work and dedication only help you to achieve your goals.”
