Spanish-born Júlia Catena Sanchez joined the ASB community as a ninth-grade student, graduating with the Class of 2018. Currently in her final year of undergraduate studies in Economics and Management at King's College London, Júlia will commence a graduate scheme with a telecommunications company, SKY,  this upcoming August in London, which will revolve around business strategy.

What experiences or teachers from ASB might have inspired who you are today?

"I have fond memories of many staff members at ASB. Completing the IB was a challenging task, but some of my teachers made it a much more pleasant experience. I enjoyed economics class with Mr. Cook. He is, in fact,  part of the reason I chose to pursue the subject in university. Also, Mr. Lopez's sense of humor helped take off some of the pressure from the IB in Spanish class. Mr. Gnagni was also highly supportive, and even though I struggled in HL Math, he was always there to answer questions and offer a helping hand."

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

"I took part in various MUN conferences in Barcelona and Lisbon. At the last BCMUN conference in 2017, I had the opportunity to chair the debates in the Security Council. That was the first BCNMUN that was student-run. It was such an honor to be part of it.

I also organized prom for my class in June 2018 with my friend, Anna Kozhokar, and a prom committee. We funded the event entirely through bake sales, selling senior sweatshirts, pizza sales, etc. We worked very hard to put the event together, and our classmates had a great time."

What would be a favorite ASB memory?

"My favorite ASB memories would be chairing BCNMUN 2017 and our graduation. Seeing all my classmates come together, so excited after exams, was such a lovely experience."

In your opinion, what makes ASB special?

"The teachers and the international community."
