Giovanna is a motivated and experienced fundraising manager with a passion for delivering high quality results by creating long-lasting relationships. After her Masters in Economics of International Cooperation and Development and in European Public Relations, she has managed communications and fundraising teams for several organisations working on gender equity, health and socio-environmental issues at national and international levels.
Her dream female mentor will always be her grandmother. The smartest woman she has ever met, able to show her strengths and weaknesses in a way that made her loved and respected inside and outside her family. 
Born and raised in Italy, Giovanna feels most at home by the sea and in the sun. She feels free when she is far from the ground so the best experiences for her were bouldering and kitesurfing.
