In 2012, I graduated from Georgetown with a double major in Italian and Government. After my freshman year at Georgetown, I started interning for the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF), where I applied my knowledge from the classroom to my work. I interned at NIAF for three years and was offered a full-time position as their public policy Program and Events Manager after I graduated. My language skills and cultural knowledge that I received from Georgetown and the Università degli Studi di Firenze are an invaluable asset to my job. At NIAF, I oversee the organization and marketing of public policy and cultural events that focus on US-Italy relations and government relations. I serve as a liaison to the Italian American Congressional Delegation (IACD) and the Italian Embassy. I use Italian on a daily basis and, through my work, I continue to develop the education I received from my double major at Georgetown.
