Joyce Pepe is a recent MA Euroculture graduate from the universities of Göttingen, Udine and Mexico City. Having grown up in a bilingual family, Joyce has grown an early interest towards foreign languages, culture and their safeguard. Over the years this has led her to move to the US for a year long high school exchange program, to enroll in a European Languages and Cultures BA at the University of Groningen and to live in 5 different countries as a university student. After an internship at the Dante Alighieri Society in Mexico City, Joyce is now looking forward to further expand her knowledge on European cultural institutes’ relations within EUNIC.
