A second-generation ASB'er, Pablo Torelló Durán '16, attended ASB for three years, in grades 10-12. His mother, Mercedes Durán, also attended the school, graduating together with ASB's Head of Community Service and Activities, Ms. Marta Vernet, in 1985.

"I'm very grateful to my parents for sending me to ASB. I have let them know this many times!"



Following high school, Pablo studied Business Management and Technology at La Salle - Universitat Ramon Llull in Barcelona, graduating in 2020.

"I am currently working in Berlin for a tech unicorn start-up that is scaling super fast!! It's changing the entire logistics industry in Europe, and it is very exciting."



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

"I had many incredible teachers that opened my mind and helped me get to where I am today. But I kindly remember Mr. Santi Bragulat and Ms. Mamen; they were both great teachers, they pushed me hard so I would excel, and they inspired me on a personal level too."



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

"In grade 10, I helped as an English teaching assistant at a Catalan public school - it was a great experience that I won't forget. Additionally, I participated in Model United Nations (MUN) for three years. I highly recommend everyone to take part, both as a participant and as an organizer."



What would be a favorite ASB memory?

"I have many, many good memories… from soccer trips to Milan and Geneva, all the way to the graduation party. But I will always remember with special care the lunch breaks with my friends, just messing around and having fun. I made long-lasting friendships that are still very strong, years later."



In your opinion, what makes ASB special?

"The diversity is what made it special for me, people from all over the world, with different backgrounds and aspirations. I look back now and realize how we all followed our dreams, and today we are all walking different paths, but ASB will always be there to connect us. That is what's special; it's not just a school, it's a sense of belonging."



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

"Community."
