Miguel E. Ceara Asuad
Miguel is a dreamer with many interests. Born in Mexico and raised in the Dominican Republic (DR) he holds a degree in economics and has conducted research in the areas of trade, development and governance. He has worked for the DR Government, NGOs and international organizations, including the World Bank and the UN Economic Commission for Latin America. Miguel has lived in six different countries and has traveled to many others, concluding that nothing beats “exposure to diversity” when it comes to feeding the innovation process. Miguel is also fun: he is a musician, a diver and a climber who enjoys taking calculated risk. As he says: “you can’t imagine what you can accomplish when you are willing to operate outside your comfort zone”.
As a recently graduated Film student with a huge case of wanderlust, Rusja (or Roo, as she’s better known), decided that the UK was not the place for her. So in November 2011 she set off on an 11-month around the world trip, visiting SE Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and finally the USA, where she worked as Media Director at a YMCA summer camp for the 2nd year running. Roo is now back in the UK, living with the post-travel blues and planning her next adventure.
