Graduating Year: 2001

Mireya graduated from King’s College, Soto de Viñuelas in 2001 after the school awakened her passion for languages, not only English either, with over 44 nationalities of students at the school, the international array of pupils offered an ideal setting for Mireya’s language love.

Mireya SemelasAfter leaving King’s College, I gained a place at Lancaster University to study for a BBA in European Management. The course and the university offered me an ideal setting to combine a Management degree with languages abroad.

I don’t think I ever thanked my teachers enough though at King’s College, for the support and passion that they offered me during my time at the school. This is not an exhaustive list, but special thanks to Mrs Coppolla for supporting my (sometimes very slow) French learning and also to Mr Gibbons for awakening in me an unexpected love for Maths. Our teachers were always there for us, even when we were no longer their students, particularly Mr Grey: Thank you.

I am now back in Madrid after 6+ years living in beautiful Dublin, which I called home after graduating from university. Throughout this time I have held different roles within Google, the specialists in Internet-related services, but who are probably most famous as being the world’s largest search engine. Balancing work with play, I’m also passionate about yoga and am currently writing and reading about this to enhance lifestyle.
