Borletti-Buitoni Trust

I felt extremely happy when I received a BBT Fellowship and I keep feeling very inspired anytime I think of being part of the Borletti-Buitoni family. What an amazing group of people! Besides the financial support they are open to help in anything and encouraging me to make my dreams come true. Thank you BBT!
