Your University Studies

I graduated in Nursing at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in November 2012. I then earned a Master in International Health at the Nuffield Center for International Health & Development, University of Leeds (UK). But I will surely be back to study soon

Why you enrolled at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University

I wanted the opportunity to train in one of the best universities in Italy for health disciplines

What opportunities our University has given you

Surely that of being followed and supported in a close and constant manner by professionals in the nursing sector during all three years of the Degree Course and, subsequently, in the choice of my post-graduate university career and work

What you currently deal with

I work in a non-governmental organization that operates in about 30 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East; I deal with health, nutrition and gender projects in the context of international cooperation and humanitarian emergency. Then, since last year, I have been teaching the course in Cultural Anthropology for the second year of Nursing at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University. In my free time I manage a small voluntary organization that deals with children with disabilities in the Saharawi refugee camps, in Algeria
