Marianella Guzmán was born in Lima, Perú. She started her academic career obtaining her Bachelor Degree in Law at the University of Lima, and her Licence as Lawyer after preparing her exam with a case from the Andean Community Court of Justice, on a subject related to Integration Law and Trade Law, defended for the first time ever in this university.
Her interest on Andean Community issues was not new by that time, since she had been working at the General Secretariat of the Andean Community as Lawyer, where she could learn about regional commerce and trade law, especially Andean Community law and economic law, as well as subjects related to intellectual property and international cooperation.
Marianella has demonstrated a solid commitment with the development of the integration process in the Andean region and as daughter of Bolivians, she fully understands the complexity of regional integration from a social, economic and political perspective.
Besides this experience, her professional background was enriched with a previous stage at Deloitte, where she made an internship in Tax & Legal area, and supported the International Assignment Services department.
Her mother tongue is Spanish and is fluent in English and French.
