Monica Grepioni
University of Bologna – i4Life Intern

Currently attending a Master’s Degree in Intercultural Communication for Enterprises and Organizations and with previous studies in Arabic and English translation, I have always had a deep interest in promoting and facilitating a reciprocal understanding between human beings, especially children which are in need to be heard.

The internship with i4Life happened unexpectedly and it represents a great opportunity to be part of a team keen on fundamental rights of children and whose actions have the potential to, step by step, create better opportunities for the human kind.
