Social Entrepreneur, Abury Foundation
Alicia grew up in Chile, South America and had her first experience with social work volunteering for the youth-led organization "Un Techo para Chile" and doing nightly food runs in High School. Looking for new challenges, she moved to Europe to work towards her academic career studying Advertising and Marketing at the Hochschule der Medien in Stuttgart. With her degree in her hand and some working experience in the event, fashion, and music business, she decided to follow her true passion: traveling. After a year of falling in love with people, places, and cultures she came back to pursue a Masters in Creative Industries Management in the U.K. There, she came across the topic that would give sense to it all: social entrepreneurship. Alicia started working for the ABURY Foundation in November 2015, supporting projects such as PortrAid, the ABURY Foundation School, "Pass on the flame - art for charity" and taking responsibility over the organization, communication, and planning for the foundation.
