Hi! My name is Edu and I have been working for AIFS since 2007, when I began coordinating linguistic exchanges for the AIFS students. From there, I began organising more activities, weekend trips and even the summer programs, which I continue to work on to this day! I studied Tourism and Work Science, an MBA, and then I worked and studied in London for one year which was such a great experience!

I love playing sports such as football, going snowboarding, running and so on. Another passion of mine is travelling, so it is a pleasure to work for AIFS, where I get to travel a lot, as well as enjoy all the activities we organise. Each semester is a new experience and I absolutely love hearing about all your adventures!

Looking forward to sharing all my experience, my language and the Spanish lifestyle, with you all!
