Following conversations with ESADE Alumni, I realized I could play a significant role in several business clubs at ESADE.
Twelve years ago I joined my parents, sisters and few other family members and started working at our family-owned business. My family business, an R&D and manufacturing service provider owning 4 plants in my country, is my greatest passion and I see myself sharing my know-how with the members of the Family Business Club, as well as learn from their experience representing other family owned businesses from around the world.
Our family supported my father during difficult times of financial uncertainty as he was establishing his business. I grew up in a poor neighborhood with no financial stability, so I am well aware of the hardships of such life. As my father’s business became profitable, our financials improved as well. Knowing the challenges underprivileged people are facing, and being eager to help, I organized and took part in many volunteering events, such as soliciting donations for kids, renovating playgrounds and painting classrooms at schools. I see myself continuing to do the same at the Net Impact Club.
As I advanced in my career, I developed a greater interest in green energy. I enjoyed working on projects that were related to this topic. During my undergrad studies I wrote essays and presented this topic to the Entrepreneurship Club. I am looking forward to expanding my knowledge as part of the Energy & Environment Club.
Throughout my life, my main recreational interests have evolved around sports: I was an amateur tennis player and swimmer, and I love watching football and supporting Barcelona F.C. However, while enjoying a variety of sports, I spent most of my time playing basketball. I played for 12 years until I was 18 years old and then chose to pursue academic studies over an offer I received for a professional contract from a number of basketball teams. Therefore, I can’t wait to play an integral part of the Sports Business Club.
