Franca came fourth out of over 200 students in her year group in the recent examinations. Next year she will be in France as part of her Year in Europe degree. This is just the sort of intellectual and personal challenge that Franca relishes. Franca is a member of Imperial Model United Nations (ICMUN) since October 2009.She is also a member of the Imperial College Symphony Orchestra (ICSO) since October 2009: participation in the International Mozart Festival 2010 in Johannesburg, South-Africa, as an ambassador of the College, participation in weekly rehearsals, weekends-away and one concert each term . France is also a member of the editorial team of 'A Global Village', Imperial's International Affairs Magazine (2010). Founded in 2009, the journal started with only 4 members and is now a well-established society with over 2000 copies per issue distributed around college . She is very popular with her peers and sets an excellent example of how to get involved with lots of College activities while still performing well academically.
