Digital Marketing and ex-basketball player

I heritage my passion for basketball from my parents and I really enjoyed as a player. Moreover, I have lived in Australia, Portugal and in Spain. From all these experiences what I loved the most was meeting new people, learning and improving a new language and discovering other mindsets. I would like you to have the same experience with the BIU Camp.

Duquesne Dukes player

Having the chance to play basketball has brought me to places I have never thought I could go to. I spent 4 years living in Barcelona as a student-athlete in Segle XXI. I won 3 gold medals in 3 European Championship and a silver medal in the World Championship with the youth Spanish National Team. Basketball has given me the chance to go to Pittsburgh, through Robert Morris University and Duquesne University. Dreams are dreams until you decide to make them true.

When I was 12 years old I turned my ACL, since then I learned to appreciate what means to be able to play this sport. I’ve been training basketball teams for 10 years now. When I am not coaching I’m teaching in a school. When a door closes, another one opens.
