Cecilia Maldonado

Cecilia was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico. After finishing high school, she went to Ireland to learn English and stayed with a host family for 9 months. It was then when she fell in love with studying abroad and the full international experience. Back in Mexico, she did a bachelor degree in Marketing and worked in Sales and Marketing for an international company. After 4 years, she was ready to continue her international experience. It was then when she decided to go to Australia to do an MBA where she had the opportunity to study with people from all over the world but also to travel the country, and it was incredible! After graduation, she moved back to Mexico and worked in a Marketing Agency before moving to Germany for her next adventure. There, she focused on learning the language and worked in retail. She now lives in the US and is very excited to be part of the Study Portals team for North America and to contribute to the journey of making education choice transparent, globally.

Key Challenge

The key challenge will be to transfer the success of Study Portals in Europe to North America and be part of the company’s growth worldwide.
