ASB alumna and parent, Verónica Mimoun '93, is today a successful interior designer with her own Interior Design Studio (@veronicamimounstudio), and the mother of three girls, all of whom attend ASB. "There's something about the school that brings you together; it's very charming."

Verónica attended ASB from PK3 through grade 12, except for a year overseas in grade 11, where she attended school in Pennsylvania. She graduated from ASB in 1993 with a taste for international life. After a year at ESADE in Barcelona, she transferred to the American University of Paris to study Economics and Business Administration. 

Returning to Barcelona to assume the role of general manager of a family business, it was 15 years later that Verónica executed her first project which inspired her to follow her three passions - interior design, project management, and financial control - and open her own studio. "ASB provided me with an international background, and through my university studies and work experience, I was able to gain a wide overview and perspective at a time where being international was not common."

When faced with where to send their daughters, Verónica and her husband took time visiting top international schools in Barcelona but felt ASB had all the elements they were looking for. "During our first visit, I could feel the school had grown since I was there, but I still sensed the same family feels in its hallways. The essence of the school has not changed; the teachers continue to be supportive, caring, and willing to do their best for the students."

"I certainly remember each one of my teachers, not only for what they taught me at school but also for what they taught me about life in general, sharing their experiences and creating new ones with us. I am so glad Mr. Smith, my former chemistry teacher, is today teaching chemistry to my 15-year old daughter."

When asked about her favorite ASB memories, Verónica replies, "I've got plenty!! I remember absolutely all of my teachers and I loved when we went on ski trips together."  

In her spare time, Verónica is an active volunteer in the school, supporting the Parent Association and Development Committee. "I tend to talk about the school as if it were my business, my home, my family - it's very much a part of me. I’m glad we chose ASB, and that there is the possibility that my girls will also have their children attend the school. It’s a pleasure for me to continue to support and help the school to improve and become even better."

"I am very thankful to the families who chose the American School of Barcelona in its early years as it gave us the chance to have this wonderful, quality school today."
