The HR team at Vesta is growing! We recently welcomed Lucía Darscht to the team as an HR Development Supervisor, who will be supporting us as we continue our expansion efforts in Latin America. In this article, we sat down with Lucía to find out more about her and her background.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your background
Originally born in Germany, I moved to Montevideo, Uruguay, when I was 2 years old. My multicultural upbringing has instilled in me a love for travelling and curiosity to explore new cultures. After completing high school, I embarked on a journey of living in various countries, gaining diverse experiences along the way. Some of these places include Europe, Australia, Chile, Costa Rica and Mexico, which has broadened my perspective and enriched my understanding of different societies.
I hold a degree in Business Administration and am currently pursuing a postgraduate program in Creativity and Innovation, as I am passionate about finding innovative solutions and fostering creativity within organisations.
Throughout my professional career, I have primarily worked in consulting, specialising in human resources and project management. With over 4 years of experience, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with various industries, leveraging my skills to drive successful outcomes.
What made you choose Vesta as the next step in your career?
I’m excited for this new challenge within a multinational company that is entering the Latin American market and has immense growth potential. I believe this opportunity aligns perfectly with my career goals and I’m eager to make a meaningful impact in this sector.
Ultimately, Vesta has a strong reputation as an industry leader and I’m looking forward to contributing my skills and expertise in a dynamic and forward-thinking environment.
What are your top three books/podcasts?
I’m not much of a reader, but there are two books that I absolutely love: “Many Lives, Many Masters” by Brian Weiss and “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” by Robin Sharma.
As for my favorite podcast, it would have to be “La Cruda.” It’s hosted by an Argentine journalist who interviews fascinating people on various interesting topics.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I love nature, outdoor activities, sports, traveling, and spending moments with my family and friends.
Who inspires you?
My grandfather is my biggest inspiration. His story is incredibly inspiring as he started from humble beginnings and worked his way up to become a successful doctor through sheer perseverance and determination. His hard work, resilience, and unwavering dedication motivate me to strive for excellence in all aspects of my life.
If you could learn to do absolutely anything, what would it be?
If I had the opportunity to learn any skill, I would choose singing. Although I freely admit that my current singing abilities are quite lacking, I am captivated by the art of vocal expression and the ability to convey emotions through the power of music.
