Bea is a 23 year-old from Ávila, Spain, who graduated this year with a degree in Commerce from the Complutense University of Madrid.

Throughout university, Bea made a point of collecting travel experiences. She lived in France for a year to learn French, visited a friend living in Singapore, and backpacked through China, Hong Kong, and Indonesia. After graduating, she was inspired to continue traveling.

“Traveling takes me to new and different places, with different people, in an environment that I’m not used to, it makes me learn. I like to see the contrasts of other countries and ask myself, why are things like that in this country?”.

But Bea was torn, she wanted to travel before beginning her career this fall and also wanted to take the time to learn and prepare for her new job.

“Having three months off, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to do both, travel and study, with other people who have the same passions.”

Bea asked for a friend’s advice on what she should do and her friend mentioned a company called Edumadic. When Bea visited the website, she knew it was the perfect way to satisfy her appetite for travel and also prepare for her new career simultaneously.

During her time here, Bea will be studying financial advising and gearing up for her new job with a broker company in Bulgaria this fall.

Despite being from a smaller village in Spain, Bea has mastered the independence of a true city woman. She can be found learning to surf at Old Man’s, laughing at Caitlin when she mispronounces Spanish words, and practicing her English with other Edumads and travelers she meets.
