Marketing Executive (International)
Cosmopolitan, extrovert, and multilingual...in other words Valentina is International. Hailing from Milan (Italy), the fashion city, she graduated in PR and fashion design and began her career in Marketing and Public Relations.
She loves travelling intensely around the world, interacting with different cultures, but above all her biggest passion is Africa. That's the reason why she defines herself as "black inside blonde outside".
As our Marketing Executive in the European Community, Valentina ensures that AMC's impact on the worldwideweb goes beyond our local boundaries and onto the international market.
When was the first time you came to Africa?I would say the very fist time was 2006 in Ghana. Great african country to start with! One of my best holiday ever!!!
What is your favorite local dish?I adore Ghana's cuisine!!!But i would probably say fufu with palm nut soup, goat meat and fried plantain. Luv it!
In a few words, describe who Valentina is.Avid adventure traveller, multicutural, curious and openminded.
Why do you say you are black on the inside, white on the outside?Well, it's something i realized when i was a kid. I always had a strong attraction for black skin & culture. At the age of 10, me and my best friend painted our faces & body with auto-darkening lotion to look less pale & more " kool" like some of our mates. Growing older, i realized that u can't and shoudn't change your skin, but my heart was all into black culture until i ended up marrying it. :)
Do you plan on visiting Africa again?I am a well travelled person & i love Africa a lot. I can say that there's a special welcoming feeling and authentic beauty that you can't get anywhere else in the world. It's just an extraordinary place with extraordinary people. So, yes, defnitely visting Africa soon again. Actutally i never stopped since 2006!!! I am addicted now!

Curious, full of life and possessing an insatiable passion for learning new things, Barbara is the recent addition to the POi team, and possibly the youngest member. She graduated from Uni with a Bachelor's Degree (Combined major) in English and French, and has garnered invaluable experience working in various capacities with several companies (Amarteifio & Co., ELAC, and just recently UNDP... to name a few). Her quest for more knowledge was the driving force behind her decision to work with POi. She hopes to put to use to the advancement of POi, all the work experience she has so far gained from the aforementioned places.
What activities do you enjoy pursuing in your leisured moments?I usually will be found trying out new culinary recipes, reading books and articles or writing one myself, or sewing (my current sewing projects are clutch bags :) ).
