Barcelona born and raised, Lucía Muntadas-Prim Aris '16, comes from a long line of ASB'ers. Both her parents attended ASB - her mother, Maria del Mar Aris, in Grades 1 and 2 ('74 to' 76) and her father, Luis Muntadas-Prim, from K3 to G11 ('71 to '86) - both her younger brothers, Luis (G12) and Guille (G9), currently attend ASB, and Lucía herself attended ASB from PK3 to 12th grade (15 years).



Graduating from Tulane University in 2020 with a degree in Political Science and Management, Lucía recently completed a fellowship with Phone2Action, which promotes grassroots digital advocacy, where she specifically worked on their Civic Action Center, which serves as a one-stop-shop for voters.

"I am passionate about social justice and committed to affecting long-lasting and meaningful change. I am currently pursuing opportunities that involve policy research and analysis. The organizations I am interviewing with focus on affecting policy and legislation related to issues such as education policy, immigration policy, poverty eradication, and criminal justice reform."  



Tell us a little about any extracurricular you were involved in at ASB.

"I played volleyball from 8th grade until senior year. My coaches, Mr. Mitch and later Mr. Andre, were absolutely incredible! They made an enormous effort to ensure we could play against local teams instead of only participating in the international tournaments that lasted only a few days.



I was also very involved in Model United Nations, which I joined my freshman year. The international conferences, such as IMUN and THIMUN were particularly memorable, and Mr. Maas was an incredible leader who worked so hard to build the MUN program at ASB and ultimately lead and support us in hosting our own BCNMUN, which continues today. During my time in MUN, I participated in Human Rights committees as often as possible. Eventually, I presided over the Human Rights Committee at BCNMUN 2014. MUN is where my passion for social justice and human rights was born."



What would be a favorite ASB memory?

"AMAC tournaments, falling down the stage stairs during our 8th-grade promotion, BCNMUN, Sports days!, International Days!!, 2016 Graduation and party on school grounds (that was a blast!)."



In your opinion, what makes ASB special?

"I think ASB is unique for many reasons. It's a multicultural, multilingual environment, which not many students in Spain have the opportunity to experience.

I also think that teachers make a big effort to get to know their students and care about them on a level that goes beyond the classroom. Teachers were always understanding of any personal issues with their students and made themselves available to support them in any way they could. I really appreciated all my teachers at ASB and don't think it would be fair to name just one or a few."



If you could describe ASB in one word, what would it be?

"Community."
