Who I Am

I'm making my best to build a personal identity shaped by academic studies, different cultures and important experiences guided by my interests



My curriculum is mostly oriented towards sciences but humanities are not neglected. Mathematics, Physics, Engineering and Computer Science are the key parts of my scientific education.

Law, Finance, Management and Philosophy complete my training and deserve a lot of my interest.



Due to family reasons and living experiences, I am trilingual in Italian, my mother tongue, French and English, the languages of my studies.

I also speak Spanish at an intermediate level as I have been studying it for many years. When tested, I have been placed in a native Spanish Speaker class.



I have multiple experiences in both educational and personal fields. I have been living and studying in 3 different countries and I have been travelling a lot since I was born, discovering 4 continents.

Furthermore, I skipped a year in middle school and participated to several extracurricular programs.



I have interests in very different areas such as finance, coding, Nietzsche’s philosophy, science, history and sports like alpine skiing and tennis.

On the other hand, my commitment to social concerns led me to volunteer for a while with Les Restos du Coeur as a teacher of French and mathematics for kids and adults in need.
