Hello everybody, my name is Andrea Nicassio, I'm 20, and i live in a small area in north-east Italy.
I have always been curious and want to experiment alternative learning paths based on my skills and my interests. Particularly, during my third year of high school I have organised extracurricular activities concerning IT projects, coding and robotic courses, and debates on current issues. Managing all this allowed me to develop skills like team working, public speaking and leadership. In the following year, considering the positive trend of the project, my head teacher started to support it allowing us to use school’s facilities and providing teaching staff for this purpose. In the same year I was elected as student representative of my school. Being the member of the School Council gave me the chance to understand how the school works from an administrative point of view. Moreover, managing a large number of people was a rewarding challenge. My favourite school subject was “Gestione Impresa”, which is Business and Project Management, in which I really distinguished myself receiving excellent feedback and final results as well.
Studying in the UK international environment has always been a dream for me. In fact, in my opinion, in an increasingly globalized world it is essential to have a clear idea of how different cultures interacts with each other in order to improve existing business models and addressing a global audience. Whereas in Italy the university educational system is completely different as it would not has allowed me to focus directly on the business topics but I would have to study economy first. England has always been an inspiring and stimulating country for me, in fact I have been there several time. I really enjoyed solo travelling to England because it gives me the chance to meet new people from all over the world.
I recently obtained an offer to study at Oxford Brookes University in Oxford, Uk, and now me and my family are approaching the difficulty of raise enough money for sustain the living cost that I will have to cover for the firsts months of living there.
For this reason, I'm now rising funds online. The perspective is to start to work as soon as possible when I will be in England, but the problem concern the firts months that i will stay there, to cover the expenses of room rent and for meals.
Thanks to everybody who will help me to realize this dream. I will never forget it.
