Italian: Chair

Ciao, fellow Italians!

I am a third year chemist, going into Management at the Business School next year.

Italians love being around other Italians. We have that culture, sense of humour, lifestyle and "marcia in piรน" that not even the London weather will change.
We have all it takes to be the most active and fun society at Imperial. Yet, in the past few years we have struggled.

From years of experience in internanational organizations, like Rotaract and Diplomatici, I think I know what is the ingredient for engagement: inclusivity.
Not only we all have to feel part of the best group of people, but we have to make the others, Italian and non-Italian, wanting to be part of it as well.
If elected, these will be my mottos:
