Mr. Iván Poza, President of the Harvard Club Spain has awarded this prestigious prize to Marta Lorenzo (4th year student of ESO of Colegio San Patricio). This prize is aimed at selected students, not only for academic excellence, also for those who demonstrate a global interest in development.
Harvard University receives around 40,000 annual applications, of which approximately 5% access, candidates that in the words of Ivan himself, "are students very similar to Marta."
Marta, wanted to thank the school and of course, the Harvard Club Spain saying: "I want to make the best of this, it is an incredible opportunity that I thank you very much, I am really happy."
In turn, Borja Aguilar, Director of the San Patricio Foundation, comments on the award given to Marta: "We are very happy, the important thing is that you take advantage of this experience with joy and constancy, the goal is not what is important. From the Foundation, we will accompany you in everything you need. "
Jaime Úbeda, Director of the center of El Soto told us: "when we were deciding the student's choice, we found many bright profiles, but we considered that was not everything, and Marta's profile encompassed everything we were looking for"
