Gaia Regina Nicoloso


Gaia Regina Nicoloso has recently completed an EMJMD in Euroculture at the universities of Groningen, Uppsala, and Ōsaka. During her BA at the University of Udine, where she graduated in Public Relations, Gaia moved to Spain for one year for an Erasmus exchange at the University of Almería. She then flew to Australia to work for seven months as Au Pair for a local family in Brisbane; the time spent working and travelling across the continent increased her interest in the Asia-Pacific area and, especially, on the relations between Australia and the EU. Gaia is now looking forward to dive further into European cultural exchanges thanks to the many events EUNIC Netherlands will organise over 2021.
