Mercedes Parrilla Álvarez


My name is Mercedes Parrilla, and I have studied Marketing and Advertising Communication at Universidad Europea de Madrid. I also graduated at the University College of Birmingham, a really enriching and multicultural experience of my student life. In 2016 I studied a master in Travel Journalism at Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona.

I am inspired by the human side and the spirit of excellence; and I consider myself as an open-minded person, the result of having lived outside my country –and outside my magic island Lanzarote– learning about different people from other cultures.

I like music, dancing, reading, writing; creativity in all its forms and its possibilities, which I consider a different way to make things and to see the world, a special option which is always linked to how we feel. I also love traveling: I love this mixture of different thinking that makes you open your mind and take distance from the everyday reality, making you matter about the real important things in life.

I am professionally interested in Travel Communications, Marketing and Copywriting, and I consider my passionated and hungry eager of learning as my best weapon.

Thank you for visiting me,

it will be a pleasure to contact you.
