Georgia Desideri-Zigante

Communications Associate

Georgia joined SAHR in 2020 and serves as a part-time Communications Associate.


Her passion towards gender justice grew first from her experiences whilst living in Hong Kong and witnessing the struggle for domestic workers to access justice through legal means, and where she gained her first experiences working alongside the NGO Help for Domestic Help. After receiving the amazing opportunity to attend the United World College of Costa Rica, she then got to meet and volunteer alongside incredible organizations who were giving the most vulnerable women platforms for empowerment, and these experiences truly laid the base for her passion to play her part to keep supporting movements supporting gender-justice. Her more recent experiences happen to be closer to her home country Italy, where whilst studying at Sciences Po in Menton she volunteered often at the Red Cross refugee camp at the Franco-Italian border, an eye-opening experience exposing the lack of support and widespread ignorance towards refugees in her own country. Overall, she hopes that while being the youngest and most inexperienced of SAHR’s incredible team of women, that her curiosity, enthusiasm and hard-working nature can be of much value to the team as this opportunity is to her.


Beyond studying and stressing about what she wants to do in life, Georgia loves to travel aimlessly with a backpack and would hike everywhere if she could, and on the other end, can be sat for days alongside her cat Wasabi reading books (current favourite: The Master and the Margherita) and watching documentaries or short films. Whilst in France she has become a novice at permaculture so would love to keep improving her skills at growing fruits & veggies and continue her (very bad beginners) Arabic.


Georgia is currently undergoing a dual Bachelors of Arts program between Sciences Po Paris (Menton campus) and the University of Sydney. She has (almost) graduated from SciencesPo with a major in Politics and Government and International Relations, and is planning to undergo a Major in International Law and Agricultural Economics in Sydney.
