Freshman Seminars: Career exploration

Encouraging ASB students to be flexible and to keep an open mind when considering their future careers

Last Friday, we were thrilled to welcome alum Guillem Ros '13 back into the classroom at ASB as part of a second virtual panel for our grade 9 students focused on career exploration. Hosted by HS counselor Carolina Barajas, guest panelists also included ASB parents Peter Freer (Investment Fund Manager) and Maria Gonzales (Independent Consultant). In addition to sharing their career and education paths, the panel encouraged ASB students to be flexible and to keep an open mind when considering their future careers. They also talked about the importance of taking advantage of the opportunities presented to them and encouraged the students to grow from hands-on experiences by using their networks and own initiative to navigate career options. 

Guillem studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Surrey, however, rather than following a traditional career path he decided to try his hand at entrepreneurship and started his own business. Today he is the founder of a fitness app called Hevy, where he designs, codes, and grows the app to thousands of athletes worldwide. 

We are grateful to our parent and alumni community for supporting ASB student learning beyond the classroom.
