Mondo Internazionale leaves the floor to its associates and partners, to better explain what it is now and what it could be tomorrow. Being aware that without them, nothing will be possible, we are now presenting you Stefano Cavallari, in charge of the project “Tra Scienza e Conoscenza” (“Between Science and Knowledge”), Francesca Locatelli, in charge of the project “MIND-Nutrition Deal” and Isabella Poretti, in charge of the project “TrattaMI Bene” (“TreatMI Well”).
Stefano: I am a second-year student of Political Sciences and International Relations. I am currently an associate and the person in charge for the project "Tra Scienza e Conoscenza” (Between Science and Knowledge), mainly dealing with the organization and the project's advertising activities, among which the drafting of articles and posts then uploaded on our social network channels are just an example. For a long time, I believed that change can, and should, start from young people, as the future ruling class and I am increasingly convinced that Mondo Internazionale is giving me this opportunity. It is a young association created for young people, whose main purpose is to disseminate information and promote training activities through journalistic articles, initiatives by members, conferences, events and so on. I decided to join the Association precisely because of these characteristics and finally I found myself working in a stimulating environment and with incredible people who are making me grow up professionally, but also humanly, and it is not a characteristic that should be underestimated.
Francesca: The mixture of different food cultures and behaviours in a globalized context linked with the importance of a correct diet and to the overall increasing attention to the nutritional field brought MIND-Nutritional Deal project to life. This said, we three nutritional-biologists, Maria Parisi, Francesca Locatelli and Federica Mascaretti aim to spread the knowledge of other cultures’ nutritional peculiarities and to sensitize the population to a healthy diet. Both, we believe, are the most important themes to be addressed to clarify an often difficult and obscure field, characterized by myths and misleading beliefs. It is an involving and electrifying experience through which we want to communicate our common enthusiasm and passion in taking part to this project.
Isabella: Thanks to Mondo Internazionale, my team and I achieved in finding a space in which we could collaborate and create an important project for us. We found someone able to give voice to our ideas, a window on other people lives. The project of which I am in charge, TrattaMI Bene (TreatMI Well), It has been a good start for me and my colleagues to give our opinion on a fundamental matter for us.
Tra Scienza e conoscenza
"The United States, more precisely Philadelphia, and Italy, with Lombardy, Rome and Naples, are joining for the first time, giving way to an international network for research between Virtual Reality and Cognitive Impairment. A challenge to eradicate fears and open new doors for young people "- Angela Romano, president of the Business School and Project Contact Person. Neurological diseases and cognitive disorders are the cause of malaise not only for the many people affected but also for those close to them; due to the fact that these situations represent an everyday reality for many families, Mondo Internazionale decided to engage a collaboration with Scuola Impresa, SHRO and CNR-ICAR to give young university students the opportunity to collaborate with professionals in the sector, both in the United States and in Italy. Participation in the project allows to work for a period of two weeks at the research laboratories of S.H.R.O, at the College of Science and Technology of Temple University of Philadelphia. The participants are placed in a research team composed of 10 university students who will join a team of researchers from the research centre, under the expert guidance of Professor Antonio Giordano. Genetics, cancer research, Bio-innovation, Biotechnologies, Bioinformatics, Epigenetics, Psychology and Virtual Reality are the fields involved and ad hoc research projects are created to allow participants to be guided to discover the world of research. The project offers great opportunities for training and professional growth, especially since the candidates will return to Italy from the United States where new phases of study and research will be developed to continue the project.
Mind nutrition deal "MIND - Nutrition Deal project was born in December 2018, in conjunction with the promotion of healthy diets and lifestyles by the United Nations General Assembly which aims to tackle the widespread problem of malnutrition. Starting from this assumption the main objectives of MIND project are to raise awareness of the population on a healthy diet and to diffuse the nutritional peculiarities belonging to the cultures of other countries. "- Maria Parisi, Dr. Nutritionist, Referent of the project. These goals will be achieved thanks to the support of three Nutritionists who, thanks to their skills in the food sector, will give life to activities and conferences with the aim of educating and involving participants and not only. The population is brought closer to a healthy diet through meetings and video dissemination of various topics, scientific articles, postings with images and interviews to subjects wishing to share their experience in the nutritional field. The nutritional peculiarities of other cultures, however, are made known through informative meetings, multicultural interviews, videos related to the traditions of various countries of the world and posts with images and captions. In addition, tasting culinary events particular of each country are the occasion to discover dishes typical of other cultures.
TrattaMIBene "Domestic violence, exploitation of human beings, sexist stereotypes and many other topics constitute the theme of "TrattaMIBene" (TreatMI Well), a project that aims to promote awareness of violence against women and highlight some of its often neglected aspects." - Isabella Poretti , d.ssa in Letters and Referent for the project. Mondo Internazionale has decided to give life to a project with the aim of communicating the dangerous behaviours present in the social system that sees violence and abuse of women and men with the former as the most affected and the latter silent victims of another form of intimidation and violence. This certainly in order to sensitize public opinion on the issue, through the writing of written and multimedia contents and public meetings, this goal being not the only one. What Mondo Internazionale wants to create is a space for discussion and information, for reflection and exchange, but above all also the possibility of young competent youths to deal with a subject as delicate as essential for the development of man as such. The project is divided into three main phases which see the cooperation of a team of young people who have conceived and supervised all the phases of the initiative from the beginning. The figure of the aggressor is the first subject analysed, through different magnifying lenses such as machismo and sexism, internalized machismo and violence as physical abuse. The second phase of the initiative concerns the woman victim of trafficking and violence, also telling the realities on the territory that deal with the recovery of subjects involved in it. The third phase, that which is defined as the "normative psychology", is oriented in particular on the comparison of the regulations on the issue in the international context, on the generational comparison on the topic regarding the Italian situation and on the conception of feminism as revolution of our century.

Within a world in eternal change where it is even more difficult to find our own place not because of a lack in skills and motivations but simply due to a lack of opportunities, we wanted to bet on creating these opportunities.
With the headquarters in the city of Gallarate (VA), we have many others in each of our associates, ambassadors of their own future and that of our Association.
We are an Association wishing to spread new initiatives and information to increase and show not only our capabilities but also our future associates’ potential in the world around us, starting from the university.
The decision to focus first on the young is clear but not trivial, because being our future they represent our present as well, what we live and we want to change.
All this started with the creation of a blog, in which young people can be listened to, highlighting the importance of cooperation in the university environment to better understand the world of today and prepare them to deal with institutional and professional figures.
This path has subsequently expanded and thus allowed the birth of the reality we are today.
Our goal as Mondo Internazionale embodies the desire to create possibilities for all those who decide to believe in our mission and actively support us. Creating a network of ideas and spaces to allow everyone to find their own way within the intricate puzzle of life and personal fulfilment.
Our projects embrace the most diverse sectors, from nutrition to human rights, to medical research, and each of these was promoted by all those people who had a deep interest in these issues and who want to make it as well as a vocation, even a job.
With this main objective, we want to commit ourselves so that our initiative is not limited to contributing only to personal growth but that can also help to develop a professional one.
Collaborating for the creation and promotion and the realization of new ideas our associates can acquire an expertise within the sectors of their narrowest competence and desire, becoming a possibility to know their own vocations and cultivate their concrete design, managerial and communication skills. All within an institutional framework, able to provide recognition and publicity to all the efforts made and the goals achieved.
It is essential to be directors and protagonists of our own future, for ourselves and for the rest of the world, because a successful world is a happier world.
"Among the great things we cannot do and the little things we do not want to do, the risk is doing nothing" (Adolphe Monod)”.
My name is Giulia Brandão Rocha and I come from São Paulo, Brazil.
It all began when I started looking for opportunities to develop new skills outside the college environment due to the traditional way of learning in the classroom, which does not bring the whole knowledge. Students of International Relations have a multifarious opinion regarding the world, but when they meet people who live in different backgrounds and cultures, their overview is altered. As one of these students, I feel the necessity to have an experience like this and participate in international events, especially because I never traveled outside my country. Consequently, the chance to be an Ambassador of the International Careers Festival it is the opportunity I found to be among talented people and students who are promoting and building together an event full of diversity.
Being an Ambassador of the Festival is different from everything I have ever done. My experience as the Brazilian Ambassador of the Festival is enriching to my personal and professional skills due to the tasks and duties to promote the event, such as presentations and public speeches to many people. Beyond that, during the promotion, you start new friendships with promoters from all over the world and with participants.
The best part is the feedback from presentations: hearing “thank you so much for sharing it” from people that did not know about the event, seeing them interested in the opportunity and asking questions is amazing! At last, I am looking forward to seeing the results of all promoters and be able to enjoy this extraordinary event in March 2019.
My Name is SALHI Narimane from Algeria. I am an activist in the Youth sector, I am Master student in Finance and I work as a product manager for a pharmaceutical company. In 2017 I started my journey with the ICF as a promoter in Algeria and a participant as a Delegate in the RomeMUN in the UNEP representing Russia.
I started working on the promotional campaign on Facebook and several social media making also some presentations for students. The journey was not that easy, it was my first promoting experience and I faced some difficult situations but I managed them and I found the right solutions. Then big day came, I took a plane with my delegation and we were finally in Rome participating in the event of which we were talking about for months. I enjoyed every single moment of the event and I decided to come do it again. For my second participation I was selected as a Coordinator and a Co-Chair having then a double responsibility. As a Coordinator I was working with the promoters in the MENA region and in some African countries. We had some online meetings, I received their reports, I answered to their questions and I helped them promoting the event. I was promoting the event as well and I had the honor to share my amazing experience with all the others. I also had the chance to talk about the event on a tv show. Anyway my commitment with the International Festival Career didn’t stop here since I also was selected as a Co-Chair. In this role I had the honor to work with Mr George; we were chairing together the UNESCO committee which was the biggest in Rome MUN 2018. I was giving advices with the Delegates on the Facebook group to help them getting ready and making their preparation easier. I some made webinar sessions for them to answer their questions, doing that even during my work lunch breaks because I think that it’s very important to be there for the Delegates since for most of them It was the first MUN experience so I was focused on training them about the procedures’ rules. The big day came and I met them, I was amazed by their motivation and I saw how the conference made a positive impact on them.
The first day most of the Delegates were shy ,but starting from the second session all of them got involved. They were debating in a very professionaly and, to be honest, it was very difficult to choose the best Delegate since they all did their best. They learned how to speak in public and how to defend the position of their assigned countries. We experienced a very strong relationship which it was deeper than that of a Co-Chair with their Delegates. I felt they were under my responsibility and since I work in the health sector, when I feel that one of my Delegates is sick or pale or feeling bad I try my best to make him/her feel better. We were all like brothers and sisters, we had great moments and we learned together while having fun. In one committee there were people from different backgrounds, different countries and different cultures but the ICF bond us as one big family. I really feel at home and I can’t wait for the next edition to meet the best people ever. The International Careers Festival is not just an event, it’s a community, it’s a family where this big world become a small home. I met a lot of people in other countries, then I met them again in Rome, and I am sure I will meet them again. I made strong friendships thanks to the International Careers Festival and, as a youth activist I think this event helps for a better future because youth is the future and through this kind of events we can spread tolerance and peace and we can hope for better world and a better future because our generation is able to make a positive change.
This year I am the Coordinator of North Africa and I am happy to work with Hossem BERKAN who is my former Delegate in Algeria MUN, and shined in the Rome Press game in 2018. He is one also one of my promoters fo this year, and we will do our best to spread the concept of this great event to people sharing with them our experience. I feel very committed to this event because I learned a lot ,and I would like to thank Giovani nel Mondo for having me as part of this amazing family.

My name is Sara Girelli, born 23 years ago under the sign of the virgin. A year ago I decided to leave everything and go to live alone, I moved to Rome, where I worked and currently I study.
I attend the three-year International Cooperation and Development course at La Sapienza University.
Almost at the end of my university career, I started looking for a curricular internship to put a little practice into all these years of study.
My desire was to become part of a dynamic group, with stimulating projects, that would give me the chance to get involved, mature on the field and grow professionally.
Almost by chance I came across the association Giovani nel Mondo, I immediately shared their grit, organized events and ideas that put young people all over the world at the center in a mix of culture, education, work and many other opportunities.
Currently I am part of the editorial staff of the web site carriereinternazionali.com, where I have the opportunity to learn how to use an online platform, get to know international organizations, non-profit organizations and much more, in a professional environment but also free and carefree. I am very happy to be able to contribute to young people like me looking for a future.
My name is Francesca, I’m 25 years old and I live in Rome. I chose the linguistic subject for my studies because I think languages are very interesting in everything that concerns them, starting with the comparison of linguistic systems. I studied at Roma Tre and I graduated in March 2017 in linguistic-cultural mediation in Portuguese. During my years at the university, I studied different subjects, passing from the practical study of language (English and Portuguese) to the theoretical one, based on language development over the years. From this study of linguistic change over time I decided to specialize in the audiovisual translation. Nowadays, television and cinema are integral parts of our life and sometimes we passively watch a product without thinking that it’s something translated for our Italian audience. Having told that, I wanted to challenge myself by studying audiovisual translation, I mean, what is in the background of a film, how a film born, a television series, a documentary..The idea that thanks to me the original language content can be accessible to everyone is what brings me forward in my studies. . I obtained my specialization in “translation and adaptation of audiovisual works for dubbing and subtitle” by attending a Master’s degree at UNINT, University of International Studies of Rome, and thanks to my university I had the opportunity to access this internship in the drafting of International Careers. Working in this environment with peers is absolutely stimulating; by working the drafting of articles I learned a technical section which I didn’t know, Web platforms and Social programming. Translating and drafting the various offers in Italian and/or English is an opportunity for me to be always updated about the positions sought by companies and I have the opportunity to apply myself.
My name is Valentina Foscoli, I'm 23 years old and I became a Roman girl due to university.
I come from a small town in the Umbrian hills where there is not much talk about international careers, but in Rome I started to be part of this fascinating world and so I launched myself into the adventure of the internship with Giovani nel Mondo and its information portal Carriere Internazionali.
I graduated last year at the University of Studies of Roma Tre in languages and linguistic-cultural mediation with English and Arabic and now I am in my second year of the Master's Degree in Interpretation at the University of International Studies in Rome - UNINT. I was in Erasmus in Manchester in 2016 and I returned with a great desire to leave again so at the moment I'm looking around to understand what I could and I'd like to do after finishing my studies.
That's why I came into contact with the Carriere Internazionali website: I was looking for a first approach to the world of work, and now I'm here as an active member of the editorial team, to give my contribution so that other guys like me can find an inspiration or why not, a true work experience or a training one both in the national and international context.
Becoming part of the editorial team meant for me to become part of a group that works with maximum cohesion to make a service that is fundamental to young people who (literally) all over the world look like me to the world of work. But I must say that it also means becoming aware of all the opportunities we can have if we are able to get to know them and really enjoy them.
After all this is what we do in the editorial office: make it easier for everyone to choose the future they like the best, taking full advantage of the opportunities offered. I know that this seems obvious, but my own experience has taught me that going into the tide of websites of corporations, institutions and companies around the world can be extremely daunting, so if you want to see what we do, stop by our page and maybe you will find your inspiration!
Hi, my name is Eleonora and I’m 23 years old. I live and study in Rome and I’ve always been in love with languages: I’ve studied languages both at High School and at University.
One year ago I graduated in Languages and now I’m attending the second year of a Master degree in Languages for the Interpretation and the Translation. In particular, I’m studying English, Spanish and Arabic.
Thanks to my university I’ve had the possibility to meet the Giovani nel Mondo association, specifically through the International Careers Festival: a networking experience that every year takes place at UNINT university where you can meet ONGs, international organizations, institutions, companies, etc.
That’s why as soon as I read about the internship, as a member of the editorial staff at Giovani nel Mondo Association, I’ve applied to: in this way I’d have the possibility to personally create and update their website through which lots of young people can find internships and jobs.
Being a member of this editorial staff is a really great training experience, not only because you are part of a working group that helps you growing from the professional point of view, but also because you can personally meet different associations through all over the world, you learn how to find and choose the right internships and job offers and it’s nice to know that you are helping girls and boys like myself to find their best fitting training experience.
I’ve started this internship just two weeks ago, but I know I’ll learn a lot and I’ll do my best to help this association meeting its goals.
