While at Trinity College Dublin, Marina has been focusing on her medical studies. She herself was a Putney Pre-College student in Amherst College and is very excited to be back this time as part of the Putney staff. In high school, at the American School of Barcelona, Marina was actively involved in medical community service and volunteer initiatives. She organized and established a CPR course program for the school community. Marina also volunteered on a Medical Mission to Peru, assisting U.S. medical students and doctors providing free healthcare in Iquitos and in remote Amazon riverside communities. There, she translated for doctors, managed patient intake and helped set up a women’s reproductive health clinic. She has also volunteered as a teacher’s assistant in a Catalan school. Marina is fluent in English, Spanish, and Catalan, and is at an intermediate level of French. She loves traveling and has visited 20 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. In her free time, Marina pursues her love of art and she enjoys playing soccer.
