***Alumna of the Ashoka Visionary Program (CEE) 2017/2018***

Carina studied Economy of Communications and Spanish in Vienna. Since her earliest childhood, she has a deep interest in other cultures, languages and countries. At the age of 17, her passion made her move to Barcelona for a year in order to start studying Spanish at the UB (Universidad de Barcelona). During her studies, she was event coordinator for two international student organizations (ESN, Argentina For All).

A strong sense of discovery and an ever-growing passion for the Spanish language eventually made her study abroad at the Argentine University of Enterprise. Back in Austria, she completed her six-month internship at the PR agency Ketchum Publico. During this time, she did not only acquire important skills in the field of public relations, but also got in touch with Ashoka for the first time.

Impressed by the company, she decided to experience her own Changemaker Journey within her traineeship. Since then, she effectively puts her accumulated PR & COMM knowledge into daily practice.
