What I’m doing now

Venus: I'm an HR specialist in Road China assistance - a Mapfre Company, which is a Spanish company ranked 399 in Fortune 500. I'm mainly responsible for talent acquisition.

My best Lancaster memory

Venus: I lived in a flat with nine fellow students from different countries; we were like one big family. We held a party almost every month; flatmates invited their friends over and we cooked exotic food from different countries and was amazing!

What Lancaster means to me

Venus: It was such a meaningful and unforgettable memory that I'll remember forever.

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

Venus: I've learned a lot about tutoring and caring through life at Lancaster and how important networking is through my work. I'd like to provide help and build a strong network of Lancaster alumni through which all can benefit.
