An Interview with Mariana

By July 28, 2017August 8th, 2017No Comments

For this interview, we sat down with Mariana, one of Sidera’s partners, in order to get to know her outside of her work as a trade consultant.

Where are you from originally?

I was born in Cuiabá, Mato Grosso, in Brazil, but my father is originally from Chile.

Before attending the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo, (PUC-SP) you studied Economics in the US at Ursinus College. Why did you choose to come to the US, and why Ursinus?

Because it was a liberal arts college that gave me more time and more knowledge to choose a major (which different from what generally happens in Brazil). Also, I had already lived in Pennsylvania and have family in that area.

After PUC-SP, you headed off to the London School of Economics and Political Science, probably a huge change from Pennsylvania! If you had to describe the London School of Economics in 3 words, what would they be?

Cosmopolitan, cool, on the edge

At Sidera, you deal with lots of different markets, especially in customs-related issues and trade remedies. What trade market have you worked in that’s the most different from Brazil’s?

The US’s.

You’ve worked in; chemical, rubber, textile, paper, steel, and machinery sectors. Out of all of those, what’s the toughest case you’ve ever worked?

The Frozen Potatoes Antidumping case against Europe that we’re currently working.
