About me: Lucia is from Montevideo in Uruguay. She graduated as an economist from Universidad de Montevideo in 2016. Lucia worked for three years at CERES, Uruguay’s top think tank, where she performed data analysis and economic research to understand emerging markets intricacies. Following this, she switched sector to become the policy director for a national presidential campaign. In this role, she managed a team of 350 people to create a new policy plan with comprehensive proposals in all government fields.
In her pursuit of generating impact, Lucia decided to pursue an MBA in London Business School to delve into different paths to take, better understand the workings of the corporate world and refine her leadership skills. Lucia is now an active member of the Tech and Media Club and, as a sports enthusiast, she has also joined the Women’s Touch Rugby, Running and Expedition clubs. Lucia enjoys dancing, teaching and meeting new people.
