My name is Desideria, I'm 21 years old and I come from Ravenna, a little town in the North East of Italy.
I have just graduated from Ca Foscari University of Venice. My bachelor degree programme was called languages (I specialized in French and Spanish), cultures and politics. I think it is really important to acknowledge the language of a country to understand its culture, its history, and its people. In order to do it, moving to that country for a period of time is fundamental. In fact, last year I lived and studied in France for six months. From this point of view, the WorkAway's adventure is a perfect opportunity because it will allow me to improve my level of language while experiencing the everyday life of a local. Moreover, I will live a different and unique experience which will enrich my spirit and help me to grow as a young woman.
My family is composed of my parents, my little dog Trudi and my cat. Mum and dad are essential in my life. I grew up in a peaceful environment, full of love and affection, and I think this has really influenced who I am now.
People say I'm generous and kind. I only know that I always try to present myself smiling and I am used to noticing only the good part of the people around me.
I always put en effort in whatever I do. I have experience only in child caring due to 5 years volunteering at my town church, but I'm a fast learner. I'm not a lazy person, I am very active and I enjoy walking and exploring the nature
What else? I love dancing, I have been dancing since I was 3 years old. I have never really learned to cook but, as I'm Italian, I can always cook something good when it's necessary. I can also ask my grandmother to teach me the recipes for the typical dishes of my hometown (cappelletti, lasagne..) and I promise they are really great!!
I will try not to disappoint you
