Valeria Morales (CRI)
Valeria first got a taste of international exposure with internships in Orlando’s Walt Disney World, which led her to join global student organisation AIESEC and intern in an e-commerce company here. After six months, she jumped into the startup scene and never looked back.
She’s worked in a number of startups but is currently the Community Manager in Fave, one of the region’s fastest-growing startups. Her main role is to look after their social media channels and community building.
Valeria is also the founder and city leader of the KL chapter of Sofar Sounds, which sets up small music gigs in unique venues with a secret lineup for local artists. It’s operated on a volunteer basis, which doesn’t leave her with much time, but she’s also recently picked up indoor rock climbing!
While the fast pace of the startup scene can be equal parts exciting, inspiring and frustrating, Valeria’s having a blast. Eventually, she hopes to take all her experience back to her home country of Costa Rica to contribute to the startup scene there.
