Rocío Benito is now working for YEU as a Communication and Projects Officer, joining the team in August of 2020.

She is from Madrid, where she studied Audiovisual Communication and Graphic Design. Her career in communication started in 2015, and from then she’s worked in either big international companies, start-ups, and organizations, which has given her the opportunity to learn a lot from these experiences and develop creative skills.

She had the great opportunity of moving to Brussels and working in the European Parliament as a Schuman Trainee, which led her to the amazing chance of working in YEU once she finished her traineeship.

Her passions are dogs, reading fascinating books, travel photography, and Neapolitan pizza. She believes firmly in the power of small actions as multipliers of big results. Start a small good habit, and repeat it day after day, improving just 1% every day. In five years you will see how far you have gone.

You can apply this to each area of your life.
