WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alexandra for the past few months for the IE Challenge at IE University and have been consistently impressed with her attention to detail, personal initiative, and passion. Most recently, Alexandra has worked with me directly as a moderator for the IE Challenge, where she facilitated communication between undergraduate students and startups that they were consulting for. I’ve been consistently impressed with her open communication and drive to always go the extra mile; no one else in her position did nearly as much work to meet the student’s needs.
