Hi everyone!

I am Silvia, and I am looking forward to taking over as the new secretary of the International Study Association Umami 2021-2022! I am from Italy and before the Msc in Health Food Innovation Management, I did my Bachelor’s in Molecular Biology in the University of Padua.

I have always been fascinated by understanding how the human body works, the mechanisms underlying health and pathologies and my end goal was finding new ways to help people.

Alongside the duration of my studies, I developed a particular interest in metabolism and human nutrition. I think this Master’s program can link these two aspects and provide me with the necessary background to put this knowledge into practice.

I decided to be part of the Umami’s board, because I believe it will give me the opportunity to enjoy my experience in Venlo in the best way possible. My goal is to create opportunities and activities that can be fun for myself and my fellow students, allowing different people to connect with each other and live memorable moments. At the same time, I believe Umami activities can also help students to be introduced to the world of work.

As secretary, my duties will be to maintain effective correspondence within the Umami association, writing the monthly ISA Umami Newsletter, taking the board minutes during meetings, helping all my fellow Umami members with any necessary tasks, as well as working closely with the Media Committee to update and create new content for all the ISA Umami social media platforms.

I am really excited about this new challenge and I cannot wait to start working with the other board members in order to make the most of the next year together!

Hope to see you all very soon,

Silvia Bellin
