Giovanna Berti - Local Representative ESN Board 2015/2016
Hey! My name is Giovanna Berti and I am the RL of ESN Roma LUISS during the board year 2015/2016. I am twenty-one years old and I study Communication Sciences here in Rome. In my second year, I joined G.S.Z. Mayday, Pesaro’s student sailing society. I have always been interested in meeting people from different cultures and learning new languages. When I was eighteen year old I did a high school year in Argentina, where I met people from all over the world and thanks to this great experience I am a fluent speaker of Spanish now. 

Why the ESN Board?
Last year, I have studied a semester in Berlin with Erasmus. Unfortunately, ESN does not exist in Berlin. I have really missed it to easily meet other international students and to do activities. Therefore, it would be a pleasure and a grateful task to serve as the integration coordinator in the ESN board, which ensures that you guys will have a great time here in Rome. I am looking forward to all the next year’s activities and to meet all of you!

Function description
RL is a relatively new position which enables you to come up with new ideas and projects. The task of the RL is quite diverse; setting up meetings with external parties, supervising internal and external committees, organizing various activities, representing ESN in several platforms and promoting and executing your own projects. The ESN committees under your responsibility are the Mentor and Integration Committee and the Internationalization Committee. Together with external parties you will set up committees that will organize the Flicks Film Festival and the International Week. Furthermore, one of the most important aspects of the position is ESN’s integration projects, namely the Intercambio Language Exchange Project and the Host Family Program. It is your job to familiarize both international and Italian students with these projects as they facilitate cultural exchange and integration!
