Born and raised in Venezuela, Emiliana Matas Tinoco ‘19, moved to Barcelona with her family in 2011 when she joined ASB as a sixth-grader. “I’ve always identified as a Venezuelan, but I definitely call Barcelona home.” Today she is a student of Contemporary Media Cultures at The University of the Arts in London.



Emiliana’s family is known for its creativity. Her old sister, Isabel, works in Califonia building sustainable treehouses @wildernestdesign. Her younger sister, Alessia, currently a senior at ASB, is a musician. Her mother, Ms. Isabel Tinoco, is an assistant art teacher in the middle and high school at ASB.



“I really appreciate the teachers at ASB. They saw me as more than just a student, especially my Literature and History teachers, who inspired me to follow a creative writing degree in my first year.” Emiliana reflects on her decision to study HL Literature in her IBDP, which helped her develop skills and processes that later became invaluable at university. “I quickly realized that some of my classmates at university who had not taken the IB did not share those analytical skills.”

While an avid fan of Open Mic events at ASB, Emiliana organized Open Mic and talent shows at BISA (Barcelona International Schools Association) events, together with her good friend, Karla Montes. “I have really fond memories of those days - I didn’t realize how strong my friendships were at ASB until I was at university.”
