Maricarmen Martinez

Class of 2020

IE Business School (Spain)

Maricarmen joined Havergal in Grade 7 ready to be an Ambassador for the College. “I tell everyone that it doesn’t matter who you are or what you are interested in, Havergal will help you find your passions,” she says. During her Upper School years, Maricarmen joined various sports teams, participated in a variety of community partnerships, played the alto saxophone in the symphonic band and held multiple leadership positions. Her interest in business studies and a global career led her to attend the Summer@INSEAD business program in France. This experience was transformative for Maricarmen as she learned from leading global business professors. She will never forget the relationships that she formed when she participated in the Exchange program to Argentina in Grade 10, where she was immersed in a different culture. “I feel that developing a global perspective will give me the tools to succeed in international business,” she says. Maricarmen is currently a member of the IE Business School community in Madrid, Spain, where she is studying business administration.
