Leticia Pascual was born and raised in a small town in the province of Buenos Aires. A former professional dancer, she danced for 10 years in the Tango and Folklore Academy. She holds a Bachelor's in Architecture from the University of Buenos Aires and a Master's in Architecture and Urban Planning at the Universitario Politecnico di Milano, Italy. Her Master’s thesis was closely linked to the environmental impacts generated by the intensive growth of agribusiness in Argentina, and the proposal of sustainable transitions. Inspired by her research, she now runs an agroecology project outside of Buenos Aires, Del Plato Huerta, together with her husband, Tomí.
