Work history

About me

Born and raised in Florence, Italy, I have a Masters in International Relations and European Studies from the University of Florence. I worked for the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK (London) as Project Coordinator in the Trade and Fairs Department until the end of 2018. During this time, I gained relevant work experience and acquired knowledge of international trade. I also developed important skills such as working under tight deadlines on key projects, working individually and as part of a team, and managing and motivating interns, while improving my IT skills.

In January 2019, I began working for Kaplan International as Education Consultant. This was an important shift in my career, allowing me to learn how to carry on consulting activities in a fast-paced environment. On a daily basis at Kaplan, I managed a heavy and demanding workload and performed under pressure to achieve individual monthly targets (100k per month average).

Having gained relevant professional experience, I am now reconnecting with my previous university studies and developing my knowledge of public policy. In fall 2020, I began a Public Policy and Management (MSc) programme at King’s College London.

What am I looking for

Gain valuable experience as a policy analyst, with a particular focus on healthcare and environment sustainability.
