Always motivated by a keen interest on this region, she studied Middle Eastern Studies and Arabic language at the Cà Foscari University of Venice, which is why she decided to deploy to Arabic speaking countries for work purposes too.

She worked mainly on Child Protection programming with Terre des Hommes as Programmes Coordinator, Country Representative, and Project Development Consultant. Elisa also worked with DVV International as M&E Consultant on Adult Education programmes, and with Première Urgence Internationale as Field Coordinator.
