Hey, I'm Eleonora!

Capire la diversità e creare ambienti inclusivi in cui far nascere nuove idee è sicuramente difficile, ma non impossibile. E se si riesce a farlo il Give back è garantito e senz’altro autentico. [..]

Questa volta, noi ragazze abbiamo l’opportunità di diventare le protagoniste del cambiamento, facendo emergere quelle che sono e saranno le eccellenze femminili in Italia. Sono convinta che con le giuste informazioni e una buona guida noi giovani possiamo davvero arrivare ovunque.
