Current grade: 4th year of Marketing and International Fashion Communication

School: University of Navarre, Spain

2021 will be my third year at Vega

Hobbies/favorite activities: I love paddleboarding, skating, traveling, and discovering new cultures. 

What was the hardest part about summer 2020: Probably one of the hardest parts about last summer was the fact of knowing that so many people died because of Covid-19 and all the effort that sanitarians were making to stop the global pandemic. For sure, it was a shame that Camp Vega could not be done, but now more than never we needed to take care of the ones we love and stay safe. 

Something new that I learned during the pandemic/summer 2020: During the pandemic, I have learned that we need to be adaptive to the new situations, we need to face and not let those changes stop us from achieving our goals. 

What are you most excited for Vega 2021: One of the things I’m excited about for Vega 2021 is seeing all my friends and campers again. I can not wait to be back at Vega and appreciate the most wonderful environment I have ever been in. We will enjoy Echo Lake more than never! Can’t wait to see you all this summer.
