Gaia Russano

Where are you from?
I come from a small town near Milan in Italy. I love my country, but I love traveling and discovering new countries and cultures even more. Therefore, in 2020 I decided to move for an internship in Amsterdam to improve my English and start living alone. Until last September, when I came to Aberdeen to do my master.

What was your undergraduate degree?
My undergraduate was “Sciences psychosocial of communication” and I did it in Milan.

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
I decided to take this path because even if Digital Marketing is already essential for the growth of any business I think it will become more and more. Also, as a curious person, I like this dynamic and constantly evolving digital world.

What do you like best about the course so far?
I think that in the digital field the most important thing is the practical experience. In fact, this master is full of projects with real clients that give me the opportunity to learn by doing and build step by step a wide portfolio that shows the competences acquired.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
My favorite app is Instagram, definitely the one where I spend the most time. I find Instagram great because it gives users the chance to have multiple types of content to interact with such as stories, reels, guides and live.

Tell us a random fact about yourself!
All my life I have had a great fear of dogs for no specific reason. Until exactly a year ago, when my family decided to welcome in our house a small black toy poodle and from the first minute I fell completely in love with my puppy.
