Bio

Carolina was born in 1998 in the city of Santiago, then grew up in Rancagua in the countryside with her 2 older siblings and parents. Where she creates a great passion for horses, dogs, art and sports. Until the age of 18 she attended Colegio La Cruz, a small Catholic school in which she developed various artistic, sports, social, and academic skills. Always highlighting her great friendships that she maintains until today and that are a fundamental pillar in her life.

In 2014, she had the opportunity to travel to Tarrytown (New York) to study English, being one of the best experiences she has ever had. Once graduated, she studied Architecture at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. But after a short period of time she realized that it was not the College Major that would allow her to develop as the professional and person she longed for, so she retired.

Because of that, right away in 2018 she began her studies of Service Administration at Universidad de los Andes in Santiago, where she has managed to participate and lead different social projects, be part of the student center, be an assistant to other students, among other things that have made her very happy and grateful. At the same time, she is a big fan of her College Major, since she understands the importance of service in all kinds of business.

In her free time, she travels to Rancagua to visit her parents and dogs, goes out with her friends, cooks, reads (books about historical romance are her weakness), paints or plays sports (being her craziest dream to become a polo player like her brothers and father.) Also, one of her favorite things is singing in the car, surely you would find her at a stoplight singing passionately some Air Supply’s song.
