What do you do in your life (work and fun)?

I am an actress, model and Face Yoga instructor. I always have been a multifaceted person, I love different things and I get bored very fast, I feel like each of my personalities feel fulfilled with something different. I love acting cause it is my big passion, I love to be able to give my soul and play with it, it feels like playing with emotions and I love it. Being a model made me feel really good, cause it gave me the chance to give life to dresses, to capture an emotion in a frame. Face Yoga, is an old love, I was 4 years old, when I was in India, for the first time, I spent long time there with my mother, she was an amazing woman and she loved everything related to skincare, and this how I learned this practice. Face Yoga, wellness and skincare in general made me feel better about myself, about approach to life, it is an amazing way to practice self love. Learning something new every time is always the best thing for me cause keep me excited. My first, first, first love was PIANO, I have played for more than 10 years and quit for other 10, but when, 4 years ago I came to USA, I started to play again and that was something incredible for me, and I have realized how much I was missing it. It is like I got back a piece of my soul that I thought lost.

What made you leave Italy and chose Los Angeles?

Many reasons. First of all it was my dream to come to live in Los Angeles, since I was 4 and I didn’t even know about what U.S.A. was, or where it was. I just had a strong drive to come over here, I must say that all my ideas about this country were right. As soon as I arrived here, I felt it was my place to be. I felt myself 100% right away, I felt I was free from the past, free from “labels”, finally free to rebuild myself for the person I was and not for a past that defined me. I was a little bit upset with my country when I left, cause I felt I had to go away cause there was no space for me to grow and become who I wanted to be. But with the distance I forgave my country and I felt actually more in love with it, I feel more proud of being Italian and even if I don’t want to go back to live there, I enjoy my city Rome and Italy in general way more than I used to.

Please share your best memory in the City.

To define one single moment is very hard for me, cause this city gave me a lot. But if I have to mention one among them, it was the moment I received my green card. In that moment, when it arrived in my mail, I felt all my sacrifices, all my dreams, all my efforts were worthy and I felt I reached a milestone moment in my life, I screamed like in an horror movie but for happiness and tears were dripping, cause I couldn’t believed that I finally made it.

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

White is my favorite color and I feel very comfortable in it, I feel that it is the best way to express my soul. The location is near Sunset Plaza, and it is where my new life has started, a new phase in my LA’s life. A phase that I have never lived before and that is giving me a lot of happiness and new emotions. It feels like a rebirth.

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US

I love this project, I love the idea of us sharing our stories, to inspire other people to follow their dreams. All of us are not “uncommon “ people, but just normal people that dared to take the risk, in a way or another, having fun in the journey. This is how it should feel like every time you take a step towards something that you want, an happy journey. Also, what I love about this project is the mind and eye behind it, Alexo, which I love as a friend and I respect so much as artist.

How would you describe being an ambassador of the Italian style/culture abroad?

I feel like I try to be myself at my very best, and hopefully by doing so I enhance my being unique, and I will inspire others to show and enhance their own uniqueness.
