Patricia is a passionate teacher who loves to see the people around her succeed. A third-culture kid - she's grown up in Romania, the UK and Spain, where she has developed a love of languages and fusion dishes. Her main drive in life is to bring people of different cultures together and create supportive international communities.

Patricia is passionate about the international educational arena and the art and design domain. She has a BA and an MA in Education from the University of Cambridge and has worked in the education industry in countries such as the UK, the UAE and China. She loves to incorporate design thinking skills into her classes as she has seen first-hand the creative and psychological value these skills bring to learners. Patricia is specifically interested in the intersection between design technologies and the education industry, where she thinks there are many opportunities to be explored for creating better learning outcomes in future generations.

When she is not binge-watching Netflix or playing board games, she swims or trains her dancing skills and occasionally competes in Ballroom and Latin.
