Yvanna, born in Venezuela, always showed a huge interest in foreign languages and cultures. She stood out in her grandmother’s children’s workshop for her reading and writing skills from an early age. As it could not be otherwise, she decided to pursue a degree in Modern Languages at the University of ‘’Los Andes’’. After finishing her studies, she began teaching French at the Alliance Française in Merida. Later, she moved to Chartres, near Paris, where she taught Spanish in a French high school for a year. Back to Venezuela and due to the difficult situation in the country, Yvanna decided to move to Germany to learn a new language and live one of the best experiences of her life as Au Pair for a lovely family in Fürth, Germany. After achieving her goal, she started an Ausbildung in Hotel Management in the beautiful city of Nuremberg. Everything was going as planned until she got married and moved to Madrid where she found her place in the cosmopolitan and multicultural Balder family and where apart from practicing her languages, she has grown professionally and learned a lot about the wide and fascinating world of the Industrial Property.  

In her free time Yvanna loves travelling, doing yoga, painting, cooking, watching movies (¡in original version, of course!) and eating chocolate.
