Dear BAIA community,
I am very excited to be the new intern for marketing and communications for BAIA San Francisco. I would like to thank all the Board Members for this amazing opportunity - I am thrilled and inspired to be working with the large and growing Italian professional community in the Bay Area. I am especially happy because this experience is giving me a chance to practice what I learned in my studies.
I earned my masters degree in communication with an emphasis on mass media. My strong passion for this major led me to different professional experiences. While at University, I was chief editor of my faculty newspaper for two years, during which I wrote editorials related to campus life and students issues. I was responsible for assigning stories to other writers on the newspaper. I also worked as Media Campaign Manager for a small advertising agency. My responsibilities included interfacing with clients and helping to plan and execute their particular marketing strategy.
Though I loved my experiences in this field at home, I felt my small town couldn’t contain my ambition and curiosity to explore what was out there. So two years ago I decided to take a break and go abroad for a year to study and improve my English. While I was studying English I also had the chance to work in Sales for a Travel Agency: it was a really important experience for me as it was my first job abroad. I developed the ability to establish priorities while working efficiently in a high-pressure environment with demanding clients.
Two years later I am still here, sharpening my skills and looking forward to accomplishing my goals.
I hope to contribute to the effort to update the content on the BAIA website, bringing a fresh perspective to our readers, while continuing to inform and support the community. I welcome your feedback and ideas with the hope of growing our network and reaching out to new members.
