In honour of the end of a not-so-great academic year, meet some of my course mates in One Random Question. Oh, did I mention, this is Business and Economics, Tor Vergata.

“What’s your earliest memory?”
My first memories… Well, I have a few of them.
One is when I was eating a chocolate ice cream by the sea and my grandmother was trying to teach me, but it wasn’t worth the effort since my face had turned completely brown.
Then I can remember my mother singing in the bathroom and my father playing with me throwing me up in the air and then taking me back. I think that’s all, of course I have others but they aren’t very relevant!
“You have two egg plants. One weighs three kilos and the other weighs three kilos, you weigh four kilos and you need to cross a bridge that can support max nine kilos. You are allowed to cross only once. What do you do?”
If I can cross only once, I throw one plant then cross with the other!!
“To what extent do you agree with this statement: Business is about finding a solution to a problem in the market. If there is no problem, you create one and offer the solution.”
Hey Barbara, well, I think that is a perfect definition of what business actually is, but I’m not enthusiastic about many“problems creation” meant to create profit for few lucky ones.
Do you know the story about the half glass of water? Someone might see it as half full, some as half empty. Weird isn’t it? As the glass has the same amount of water. Well it’s up to you. … I choose to be happy..
What do you think is a necessary ingredient for success?
Predict what the world will be like in 20 years
“If you had a queendom what would you call it and how would it be different?”
Soooo, to answer your question, tough one by the way, I would say that I would name my queendom “United Queendom” hahaha just kidding, it’s a really tough question. I guess I would name it Dawn, signifying the start of a new day, a new page. Corny? Yes, very much.
And how would it be different? Another tough question, well, it would base itself around education, creating a system in which students don’t necessarily have to struggle for their education. For example, giving a specific amout of money to students who also work, or who can’t completely afford to attend university, like assistance, or maybe paying a student a certain amount of money corresponding to the grades that they have, like a payment to push the students to study more, an incentive.
Who’re your favourite people in the course right now?
Opportunity comes ones in a lifetime. Its an opportunity because I had been in the commercial department since high school so I had to continue in that direction and since BE was in English language,in Rome, three years course and close to my parents house, I decided to give it a shot… I guess it paid off
oh my god…very hard question…If I were a song, I would be…Katy Perry’s firework or Cristina Aguilera’s Beautiful…
Who was the best professor throughout the year and why?
iPhone or Samsung? Why?
Sounds good? Or do I have to change it?
I would be studying a different thing. Probably having a career in aviation. I’m going to need a photo of you. Make sure I look the best out of all of them.
What’s your dream job?
Well, let’s start from the simple things…I believe that everybody should be satisfied with their colleagues. Hence, in my dream job I would like to work in a very interactive environment full of enthusiasts, idealistic people who are lively and motivated. I would never get bored. And it would be one that allows me to travel and learn new things. To grow and have new experiences. Yes, I think I would be really proud of that kind of job!
