I live with my mom, my stepdad, and my step sister; I go to my dad’s house on the weekend and sometimes during the week; we all get along well, even if I and my sister argue very often…

I live in a wonderful city near a lake and the mountains, during a very period of the year you can see beautiful landscapes.

I am a very active girl and I love all kinds of sports. When I was little, I played a lot of sports, such as volleyball and karate, and I’ve practiced ballet for ten years, but after I’m much time it got boring and I started Judo, at fourteen years old. I usually train twice a week, I sometimes help my teachers with the little kids. When I have time I go swimming, to strengthen my back and my arms since I don’t go to the gym. I have never missed a match, and in just three years I’ve competed in eight provincial tournaments and four regional qualifications, I’m looking forward to winning an Italian championship someday, but for now, I give my all to the regular matches.

Music has played a big role in my life, and in fact, I still love it: I don’t have a favourite song or kind of music, because what really matters to me is the lyrics, even though right now I mostly listen to rap, another hobby of mine and reading like favorite books are mostly thrillers.
