    Buongiorno, Bonjour,

    Hello to all of you from Italy,
    I am Giulia Falchi, currently working as project assistant at the Regional Coordination Office for the Mediterranean of the International Centre for Migration Policy Development in Malta. I have already several direct working experience with migrants and asylum seekers and I decided to enroll to this course to learn more about the nexus of human rights and migration, especially at the current times since most thing are changing due to the Covid 19. As I am more familiar with the Mediterranean geoghraphical area and migration situation, I hope this course will expand my knowledge on migration in other context.

    Looking forward to learn from the course and all of you



    Hello, my name is Jessica Rios and I graduated as a first-generation college student from California State University Long Bech in Anthropology and I am currently a candidate in the General Anthropology Master’s program at CSULB. Growing up in a mixed status family, I experienced the institutional barriers that underrepresented communities encounter when navigating social services, education, and professional opportunities. These experiences led me to pursue research on how sustainable community networks support underrepresented communities’ success. As the Program Coordinator for the Dream Success Center, I am committed to empowering undocumented students and advocating for their educational equity. Based on my assessment of student needs, I developed and will be introducing the first undocumented peer mentorship program within the Dream Success Center.

    I look forward to continue educating myself with you all.
