Born and raised in Spain with Mexican heritage on her mother’s side, Carolina Rodrigo ‘15 attended ASB for fifteen years, from PK3 to Grade 12. Her older brother, Sergio, also attended ASB, graduating from the Class of 2012.

While pursuing a degree in Marketing and Sales Management at University Abat Oliba CEU in Barcelona, Carolina decided to apply for a year abroad her junior year. She moved to Houston, Texas, to attend the University of St Thomas and enjoyed the experience so much she stayed to complete her senior year. “I am glad I was able to experience college life in both Spain and the United States.”

Upon graduation in 2019, Carolina interned at Stanley Black & Decker until the Covid pandemic hit. “Once the pandemic hit Spain, I decided to follow my passion and start an online bakery. I have always wanted to own my own business, follow my passions, and start a new venture.”

While the business is still growing, Hello Sweet BCN (@hellosweetbcn) is increasing in popularity. “I enjoy bringing unique and personalized desserts to our clients. Plus, I get to work with my mom, which I love,” she shares. 

While many ASB teachers had an impact on her life, Carolina highlights her HS Spanish teacher, Ms. Mercedes, and IB Economics teacher, Mr. Mirza.

“ASB is special. The different cultures, customs, and experiences make each person in the school so unique and valuable. Growing up, I always looked forward to social events at school, such as the Winter Bazaar, Halloween, or International Day.”

When asked to share advice to seniors, Carolina reflects, “Always try your best but don’t be too hard on yourself. Life is not a race. Overall, ALWAYS be kind; you never know what someone else is going through behind closed doors.”

ASB in one word?

“Unique.”
