Bio

I was born in Naples in 1992. I studied at the University of Naples "L'Orientale", where I graduated in Chinese and English. During my second year of university, thanks to a Chinese friend, I flew to the Dragon Land.

While eating white rice and steamed dumplings, I understood that my life would be divided forever between East and West. 

Shortly, thereafter, I completed my studies and obtained the scholarship of the Confucius Istitute, thanks to which I returned to China. There,  days passed by so quickly: intensive language courses, work duties and homework. Not to mention the fact that each daily experience contained a glossary to be daily learned and filled in the "Pleco" folders. 

Expired the visa, my "nihao" and "baozi" were replaced by the "Buongiorno" and the Neapolitan Croissants.

In Naples, I decided to share the experiences gained in China, collaborating with various companies in the marketing and communication fields. In 2018 I worked for "Ciao Cina" a chinese-italian associacion, as an interpreter, translator and cultural mediator. The association, based in Naples, aims to develop and promote cultural activities and initiatives in order to spread the integration between the Chinese and Italian cultures. 

Currently, I am involved in the "Welcome Chinese" certification project, as a marketing advisor in order to support certified members in online and offline activities, with the aim of ensuring them a correct positioning on the Chinese tourism market and helping them to meet the Chinese hospitality standards.

Meanwhile, I work as a qualified interpreter and translator for several law firms, companies, associations, enterprises, private sectors and official institutions. I offer a wide range of  services from interpreting and translating to marketing consultancy and project management.

Since the Chinese world is my greatest passion, I managed to combine duty with pleasure, and everyday I dedicate myself in studying in order to improve and upgrade my skills. My motto is :" Every sunrise hide the richness of what you will have learned at the end of the day."
