Cristina Patriarca is a young professional currently based in the UK, where she works as a project manager for an international development consultancy.
She holds two master’s degrees, one in International Relations and one in Human Rights, earned from Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia and the Global Campus of Human Rights. These degrees well combine her strongest interests. Cristina has been working in both the private and non-profit sectors, taking on very different roles. Particularly relevant is her involvement in the migration sector and her contribution to the establishment of a charity focused on the promotion of women’s rights. Her life-ambition ambition is to have a positive impact on people’s lives through her work and to enable others to do the same. Cristina thrives in international, multi-cultural and multi-lingual environments, fascinated by diversity and always eager to understand other cultures. She loves travelling and writing. Prior to the UK, she lived in Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Cristina’s mentor is Marilena Ioannidou.
