“Go forward with an open mind, rather than planning every step of the way”
I am from La Paz, Bolivia and have been on exchange programs in Germany and the USA, but Madrid is my first experience living abroad for a longer period. I’ve always liked to be involved in sports, but currently I’ve gotten into running and CrossFit. Apart from that, I like reading in general, make the most out of the time with my family, take a couple of hours a day to hang out with my friends, and whenever there’s an opportunity, travel to a new place. I have participated in some events and seminars regarding different current affairs organized by the university, clubs and societies at IE. Also, I enrolled to a new language course, and signed up for the Debate Club where learned a lot about research and argumentation, besides improving my oratory.
