I am Chiara Gozzelino, I am 23 years old, and I come from Italy! I had the chance to discover the fabulous world of Russia, thanks to ProfIntern, an amazing association, who helps student and workers to find internship abroad.
My love from for this country started four years ago, when I decided to study at the Languages Faculty in University in Milan. Anyway, the best way to improve your skills in speaking different languages, is to go directly abroad! This is also important to find out the culture and the characters of people, that are different from you. Saint-Petersburg is an amazing city to live in and to study. I met people from all over the world and I had the opportunity to face with the real Russian culture. Just think about going in wonderful and historical places every day, seeing how people live here, tasting their food and going out in the evening! There is nothing you can’t do in this city! I really suggest student to choose Saint-Petersburg to study and work, because it’s the most useful way to improve your Russian!
For my third time here, I decided to try to do something different and useful for my career: after a month of Russian language course, I started to work as an intern at the Fashion Branding Company, the first school of branding for fashion specialist, in Saint-Petersburg. I studied and helped a young designer in her work. I am really fond of fashion and so for me it was an amazing opportunity to learn a lot about the Russian fashion market! It was also useful to improve my fashion vocabulary and to be able to work and do research in Russian. The association found the best solution for me in a little time!
They always cared about me, and organized meeting among students! I really suggest to everybody to live my same experience, because it’s useful for your ability in speaking Russian, your future carer, but also for your life! Living abroad can be both easy and difficult, but you will learn a lot, and you will be proud of yourself! You will live an amazing experience thanks to ProfIntern, that you will remember for the rest of your life!
