What were you doing before you joined the Uprise program?

I was working in the marketing team for a software company for 6 years in Barcelona! I think I just wanted clarity on the direction I wanted to take, and needed the space, honestly to see how I felt towards the many ideas I had.

How has your career changed since graduating from Uprise Academy?

Back to Europe I’m working on launching my project later this year, which would be implementing all kinds of wellbeing services such as coaching, mindfulness and meditation with big corporates, startups and other companies in Barcelona, to help the workers achieve work-life balance and have less risk for burnouts.

Currently I’m testing sessions with 2 different companies to find the types of classes and sessions that fits people’s schedules and expectations best. Also working on my website for this, while continuing studies in coaching and dance teaching.

What was the most surprising thing about your experience with Uprise Academy?

The people. I love the way Uprise Academy selects people and creates these groups, it really surprised me how you can learn so much from each person, it's true what they say! Even the co-living I honestly thought I would not like but for me it became such an important part of forming such good relationships in the tribe. For me, it helped confirm for me the direction I wanted to head into, the coaching especially really helped with this. Actually, the first month was amazing I think it was such an incredible time and that definitely surprised me.

What advice would you give to someone thinking about applying for the program?

Honestly, the way you can get the most out of this program is if you are sure that you can commit to exploring a new direction. If you are really, seriously motivated to make that change then you should do this and Nomad is a great support network to help you go towards that change!
