Valeria Marino has shown interest in sustainable development from a very young age, by organizing and participating in events that raised awareness about the issue in her home country of Peru.

As an International Baccalaureate student, she focused on making her volunteer projects work towards informing disadvantaged communities about the actions taken in favour of education and sustainability. She also was part of a project that helped them raise their level of instruction with continuous tutoring, to make her country have a more conscious population.

When she moved to Canada in 2016, Marino went even further and worked with organizations, such as Nature’s Ride and Natoura’s Journey, that promoted the relevance of environmental problems through information platforms that were adapted according to the age of different publics.

In 2017, Marino was accepted to study at the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary, where she is about to complete her first year of a Bachelor of Commerce degree, with a major in finance. Throughout this time, she has participated in various offices at the university where she aimed to make each work environment more efficient and to provide students with a better service. Her long-term goal has always been to introduce the factor of sustainability to her business studies, as it is evident to her that the bond between these two areas is getting stronger. Through this and other close experiences to sustainable energy development, she seeks to determine the best way to complement business and sustainability at an undergraduate level to make this a more appealing academic pathway for future generations.

After working with CESAR, Valeria resumed working on her Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Calgary.
