Graduating Year: 2014

Kelsey was a resident during her time at King’s College Madrid, living in the school’s boarding residence; Tenbury House. She graduated in the summer of 2014, to study Applied Mathematics at Harvard University in America. During her time at King’s she became passionate about economics and has continued to pursue this interest at university.

Coming to Spain for the first time, to study at King’s, at the height of the Spanish crisis piqued my interest in economics. At university, I have realised how analytical skills in Maths, compliment this economic context. I hope to pursue my passion for both by studying Applied Mathematics.

During my time at King’s College, Mr. McNally was an enormous help in guiding me through the application process, and being a wonderful sounding board along the way. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him.

I’m currently living in Cambridge Massachusetts, attending Harvard University. I really enjoy being in different groups on campus, particularly the women’s varsity crew team, and working as an Assistant Director for “Harvard Model Congress and Model United Nations”. Both have offered me great exposure to the types of government positions that would allow me to exercise my analytical skills, and my passion for more qualitative analysis.
