Hi there everyone..!
It has been a while since the last time I wrote something. I actually thought that I would have had nothing else to say, however, I thought it would have been interesting writing something more about what happened after my graduation last June.
Right after graduation I actually flew to NYC for an amazing internship with a production company. During my time in NYC I met so many great people and learnt so much about one of my favourite industries (films & motion pictures) and had the time to read more about it during my commuting time. Useless to say, it was absolutely unforgettable and I am just so grateful for such an amazing opportunity 🙂
The only reason why I managed to do something like this during the summer was because Read the rest of this entry »

One week to go. ONE WEEK TO GO! This does not even sound real! My friends and family are gonna join me from Italy, Scotland and US and I truly can’t believe this moment is almost here. Everything is ready: my gown, photography and evening buffet for my guests. I feel excited just thinking about next week, but at the same time I have that bittersweet feeling that makes me realise that I’m gonna have to leave both Edinburgh and Edinburgh Napier. This makes me so sad I can’t even explain! However, I’m sure I’ll always keep in touch through the Alumni community, which kind of makes me feel better 🙂
As many of you are (or will be) in my same situation very soon, I reckon you are going through my same concerns: Read the rest of this entry »

It can be very frustrating feeling like travelling and not being able to afford it. However, there are many free tours out there. It is important to be aware that many tours that are advertised as ‘free’ actually mean that at the end you’re gonna be asked to leave a donation. So technically you could just leave and not pay, however it is not nice custom to do so…so make sure you’ve got at least a fiver (or whatever you think the tour was worth it) not to be surprised at the end!
As you may want to visit specific places around Scotland e.g.

Scotland is not just a land of great nature, history and traditions..it’s also a great place for sports! But what I have on mind is not the usual soccer game, or American football.. Today what I’d like to explore is:

What would it be your first move in trying to find an internship? What would you Google, and what wouldn’t you?
In my previous blog post I mentioned that Edinburgh Napier offers the chance to get an internship as part of the degree only to some courses (as an elective module), so either if you won’t choose that as a module or if you don’t have such chance within your programme you should start preparing to approach companies to ask for work experience. So where to start? This is my top 10 list of things to do while looking for an internship, so here we go: Read the rest of this entry »
