What was the most exciting thing that happened to you recently?

Nothing that exciting happened lately, despite the fact that I wanted to travel to Paris since I was 15 and now finally I’m here on vacation. To be honest, the most exciting part of my life has to come, as I just finished high school and I’m going to start university and move to Milan on my own. I’m super looking forward to that, it’s the perfect chance to find my individuality and autonomy and finally be who I want to be.

What’s the weirdest thing you do when you’re on your own?

It happens that I have conversations with myself or my dog, sometimes I do it in English because I want to keep myself trained and used to that language.

Who’s your favourite artist at the moment?

I really like Petra Collins, she’s a photographer and I’m so in love with her pictures! I’m really into the way she shows the world in a girly and romantic way.

Where do you feel most ‘at home’?

I feel at home when I’m comfortable with myself and with the environment that surrounds me. I can feel at home when I’m with a friend of mine who I’m really close to or where I can feel truly myself.

Do you think the Internet is more of a positive or negative aspect of modern life and why?
I think it depends, I must consider the positive and the negative sides of it. It keeps things easy, everything is faster thanks to the net. It’s also useful for people who rely on visibility or whatever. But on the other hand it’s less sincere and people tend to be faker, especially on the social platforms. Personally I tend to be as real as possible on the net, thus I look just at its pros.
