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.
