Meet Tatiana Acquaviva
Tatiana Acquaviva graduated in Foreign languages for the international cooperation at the end of November 2015 and she is really interested in international programs, related to international affairs, integration and multiculturalism. In 2012 she took part in the Rome edition of Model United Nations, as delegate of Ukraine.
When she was 15 years old, she founded the Interact Club “Bari Agorà” together with other young people and she started her experience as member of Rotary. Then, in 2009, she was introduced in Rotaract Club “Bari” and also because she was elder than before, she became a real active part of the Club, taking part in all the services and events. Two years ago she was Secretary of the Club and during that year, she really understood how important is to be an active member of the Club and to collaborate, in order to raise resources to support services and to help other people.
Besides the change to get trained as a young diplomat, Rotaract Global Model United Nations grants you the opportunity to explore different cultures and test your interpersonal and intercultural dialogue skills.
