Originally from Spain but raised in Switzerland since her teenage years, Clara Corchero ‘18 has fond memories of ASB, attending the school together with her three siblings, Maria, Eduardo and Luis, from 2006 to 2010. 

“Although I only attended ASB from grades 1 to 5, the friendships I created will always be special to me. I remain in very close contact with former classmates, and we meet whenever we can!”

In her third year at the University of Exeter, currently studying a Bachelor of Science with Honors in Politics and International Relations, Clara commenced her industry-year at Lonza AG this year, a pharmaceutical company that has partnered with US Bio-Tech Moderna in the production of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. 

“I work in the Human Resources department with a lovely team which I hope to work with again once I finish my studies.”

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

“It’s crazy to say considering I was so young when I attended ASB, but Ms. Teresa’s Sociales class really sparked an interest in me which led me onto a Social Sciences path. The joy and energy she brought into that class was something I think nobody at ASB will ever forget.”

What would be a favorite ASB memory?

“One of my favorite memories from my time at ASB was the SEED program. It was a great way to get to know many people and make friends in other grades. I remember having an incredible time with all the activities and singing ‘Yo quiero tener un millón de amigos” every Wednesday afternoon.

Another of my favorite memories would be the Halloween Parades. The anticipation before that was insane! It was such a fun atmosphere, and everyone always had a good time.”

ASB in one word?

“Diverse.”
