Three persons with many things in common. Young. Creative. Curious. Daring. And they love what they do. It does not come as a surprise that this mix of elements turn into positive life projects.
These characteristics are prevalent on all three speakers: Adrián Latorre, Marc Perea and Mireia Vidal. They shared their stories with us making from this one, a memorable event.
Adrián Latorre co-founded the blog El Androide Libre, the most visited Spanish website specialized in Android. More than 6 million visits monthly!! Adrián is involved in many projects: some of them succeed, some not. But as he says, all these experiences have been a source of valuable learning and an opportunity for meeting new people. He encouraged the students to stop wondering, but trying instead. We can’t agree more on that.
Marc Perea co-founded bcnmoments, a start-up that offers to students a new way to get to know major companies: through master classes and workshops led by their managers. Marc realized that in other countries the relation university-business is much stronger than in Spain. He didn’t sit idly; instead he passed to action. His speech on how he made his idea happen was an invaluable learning for attendees.
Mireia Vidal is a haute couture designer who also has created her own clothes’ brand. What is even more impressive: she already did all of that at the age of 17 years-old! During her speech, she transmitted the devotion on what she does, while inspiring the audience with her story. We don’t have any doubt it is only the beginning of a promising career in the fashion world.
“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.”
The previous quote is attributed to Walt Disney. However, it could have been perfectly uttered by any of the speakers who made this encouraging conference possible.
Thanks to all of them for coming!!
