Maria Marqués Boving (Class of ‘17) attended ASB from 2008 through to twelfth grade, as well as her younger sister Lola (Class of ‘19). 

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

“Plenty of teachers and staff throughout my time at ASB have had an everlasting imprint on my life. They taught me to develop my innate qualities which make me who I am today.

During my high school years, being involved in the student council, RefugArt, Feed the Future, Model United Nations and the volunteer service trip to Nepal also played an instrumental role in my development.” 

After graduating last year from the University of Leeds with a degree in Sociology, Maria is now completing a Masters part-time in Contemporary Religion at King’s College London. She is also Content and Community Manager at startup Serendipity, creating an app for charity donations through a platform based on quick and conscious giving.

“At Serendipity, plenty of my passions are combined under a single initiative. It feels great to be laying the grounds for users of the app to direct their resources to those people and causes that need it the most, in the most efficient ways possible.”

Aside from this, Maria actively blends her imaginative side with her more proactive approach to making an impact in the world.
