Students must get to know Amaro del Capo!
My name is Ginevra Comin. I am a first-year undergraduate in History and International Relations from Rome.
I am interested in joining the Italian Society’s committee as the social media manager as I believe that, with my experience to date, I would contribute as well as learn. I had the opportunity to participate to some of the events and that pushed my interest towards participating in their organization. Being class representative for three years has given me the capacity to manage time as well as organize and work in groups. I also formed my student union "Vox Nova" during my high school years, which gave me management, social, and problem-solving skills. I arranged events and debates, as well as devised innovative solutions to school issues and student inquiries. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, I also organised an annual event at my high school called 'La Notte Nazionale del Liceo Classico,' in which I had the specific role of events and social media manager, with the goal of promoting the school itself, as well as the values of humanistic culture and the importance of its study.
As a committee member of the Italian Society, I would bring my enthusiasm for Italian culture. Studying history now and having spent five years in an Italian Classical high school, has developed in me a deep appreciation for the beauty of Italian literature, art, costumes, and people. As a result, I feel it would be particularly interesting to arrange a series of events focusing on the costumes and traditions of various Italian regions, promoting those areas, and encouraging students to visit our amazing home country. I am also a highly sociable person, and I am confident that by forming a cohesive team, we will not only make this journey more enjoyable for everyone, but we will also achieve greater success.
