I am originally from Verona and I am of Chinese and Vietamese descent. As a child I never realised how beautiful my city was, but growing up I ended up falling in love with its romantic atmosphere and its medieval look: it attracts every year millions of tourists and I can see why. I have always been interested in art. I enjoy drawing and painting (especially landscapes and animals). Another big passion of mine is travelling. I love getting in touch with people and cultures from all around the world and discovering new things, that can enrich my perception of the world around me. This is also one of the reasons why I decided to study foreign languages. One of the aspects I love the most about discovering new cultures is the traditional cuisine. I love tasting foods from different countries and I enjoy every world cuisine, Asian and Western included!
I come from the Naples area, in Southern Italy and I moved to Turin last December to follow my dream to attend a Masters in Conference Interpreting.
Since an early age, I have always loved making foreigners understand each other. This is why I wanted to study foreign languages and become an interpreter. As I have always been a talkative person, it was not enough for me to only use one language!
Thanks to the Erasmus+ programme, I had the chance to study and work in Paris and Brussels. I am also fond of baking and trying new recipes, above all those of the Neapolitan tradition (of which my mother is an expert and a great teacher), and I have a great passion for dance: I have a diploma in ballet and modern dance, and now I’m studying lindy hop.
Last but not least, I love travelling, reading books, and doing charity works, like teaching Italian to migrants. During my lifetime I would like to learn as many languages as I can and to enrich my life as much as possible.
I was born in the beautiful island of Sicily, in the city of Palermo. As a good islander, I love the sea, the sun and good food, all things this land has to offer. I am particularly in love with my hometown, so rich in history, art, and beauty. Though I am currently living away, and hope to do so for awhile longer, to learn new things and grow as a person, my intention is to go back to Palermo and “live” there rather than “leave”, because anyone else is doing it, but I am convinced this place has a lot of potential to be discovered and used. I have always been passionate about foreign languages and music. I have a Masters degree in Technical Translation, but my real love has always been interpreting, and that is why I decided to move to Turin for a short period and get this Master. I also love singing and hope one day I can find a way to combine music and languages, and make a living out of it.
