I realize now that most of the time it is in fact ourselves who are unaware of our own potential. Nevertheless, I pushed myself to try, and now I couldn’t be happier about my decision.

About me

I’m really proud to have persevered and entered the EY Challenge. I never thought I would reach the final, let alone win! I’m grateful for the opportunities available at IE University, which helped me to perform my best in this competition. Studying at IE University requires a lot of group work and presentations, both of which were invaluable skills to have in the competition. I have a keen interest in consulting and I now have first-hand experience working as an intern at EY. I also studied abroad at McGill University in Canada. I met a lot of interesting people through both the EY Challenge and my exchange program, and found inspiration in other like-minded students. For me, these are hugely important experiences to have, which will definitely help me to achieve my career goals in the future.
