Paola Sartorio1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
Three years, from 1987 to 1990.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
I was looking for a boarding school and Ecolint seemed the perfect combination of boarding school and city life.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Mr. Robertson, for the seeds that he planted in my mind, and Mrs. Formenti, for the way she loved her students.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
The bench close to the main gate; I could see who was coming in and out and chat with friends.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
I did not have one place in particular but I loved walking around Geneva. My favourite restaurant was l’Entrecôte where my parents would take me whenever they visited.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I live in Rome and manage the Fulbright programme, a scholarship programme between Italy and the USA. In 2006 I became the mother of boy-girl twins.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
In an increasingly international global world, Ecolint has a lot to offer when it comes to living together.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Ecolint is a unique place where anyone feels part of it!

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
Ecolint taught me to embrace diversity and develop a curiosity for the rest of the world. Not to mention that in three years I became fluent in three languages!
