Born in Venezuela, Samantha Saldivia graduated from the International School of Panama and is currently studying for a degree in Business Administration at the University of Navarra.
At the age of 10, she was the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed 6 people, a tragedy that opened her eyes and made her appreciate the true value of life. She learned the importance of living in the present, of compassion and of always being grateful for what we have.
Experiencing something like this so young has helped her to choose happiness above all else, inspiring her to help others focus small everyday things that boost their wellbeing. She has appeared as a speaker at TEDx and at her university’s “Lead Creative” event in 2021.
