USA

Best Representatives: Julia Peterson (USA)

Julia Peterson: “After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, I joined numerous theatrical companies, performing throughout NYC and touring the North American continent. While loving the creative lifestyle and the opportunity to travel, I discovered a challenge in how to supplement my living expenses. After exploring opportunities in New York City I decided to take on and grow in business management roles in the retail sector, all the while balancing the creative components of my life.

Little by little, over the last decade, my independent and self-motivating spirit began to show me how to combine style, strategy and business which now have become the major influences in my life.  I attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, and have been able to build a business teaching and coaching actors for the stage and screen. I am, also, passionate about different cultures´ perspectives and wisdom traditions, and study and teach subjects such as yoga and the Alexander Technique.

Since traveling has been the most important influence on my life to date, the work BEST Programs does to enhance cultural and personal development through their internships and edu-travel learning programs enthuses me greatly. As I have traveled the globe, my love for learning, people and different cultures has only grown.  BEST offers an awesome opportunity for participants to grow on a personal and professional level while immersing themselves in a new culture.  My work will be coordinating international participants coming to the US on traineeships and internships.  It is my pleasure to be a part of this team and to work for these students in the US.”

Russia

Best Representatives: Anna Cherentsova (Russia)

Best Representatives: RussiaAnna Cherentsova: “From my earliest school years I have always felt learning to be a creative and fascinating process. My enchantment did not waver with time. I developed a number of skills ranging from music and ballet dancing to structural linguistics which I graduated in at St Petersburg State University.

When writing my thesis in Phonetics, I almost turned to programming, but I finally decided that it would give me more variety and freedom of thought if I stayed in science. Now, being a wife and a mother of three amazing kids, I’m just as devoted and I’m trying to pour my creative spirit into family life every single day.

The experience of learning, loving the new and finally possessing the art of knowledge have always given me wings to soar and I believe that nothing is as enriching as immersing oneself into a fresh cultural environment of a faraway country, carried on the wings of your competence and self-growth.

In spite of having travelled a lot, I have only had this feeling once. It happened when I did my internship in web marketing and translation through BEST Programs in Madrid, Spain. This feeling remains with me today and it is my goal to give it as my gift to everyone who is searching for it through my role as Russian Representative. BEST, I’m with you!”

Italy

Best Representatives: Gemma Puleo (Italy)

Best Representatives: Italy

Gemma Puleo: “Born (1977) and raised in Palermo, after studying at the Università degli Studi di Palermo and the Italian Institute for Foreign Trade, I began working as a consultant to international companies in the areas of leisure, travel, tourism and public relations.

My work as representative for BEST Programs began in 2008 after a web encounter and has led to my association with many new professionals and local Sicilian business associations which enhance my growth both personally and professionally. BEST, with its educational and cultural focus, has proven itself to be a useful, and popular, international business exchange program which I can recommend trying and enjoying.

With the central idea that words alone don’t teach and only life experience gives you knowing, BEST has provided a fresh way of supporting Italian and Sicilian businesses. BEST’s original formula to help companies meet important targets in the area of internationalization, is based on building associations between firms and overseas business communities through the internship program.

Personally, I spend my time traveling, reading, studying law and concentrating on well-being through cooking, exercise, cultural outings and off-time with family and friends. My long-term objective is mainly aimed at improving my professional standing overall in order to acquire new and more advanced skills for aiding small and medium-sized local firms to be more competitive in the European market.

I am professional, well-organized and deep-learning oriented with an eye for detail. When I met and hosted Best Programs some years ago I realized that Best had real and clear objectives which interested me in their work because it merged together with different elements of my own personality and cultural background: language knowledge, continuous-learning and constant opportunity for growth. For these reasons, if you are attracted by this interesting project and wish to make significant progress towards internationalization in your business, do not hesitate to contact me”.

His many personal and professional merits as producer, photographer, film director and tour guide along with his personal experience as an international traveler, attest to his enormous enthusiasm for promoting Cuban culture through creative and innovative means.
