Let me introduce myself: I'm Camilla

Hi everyone,

Today, I will share with you an overview of my life's journey and what it means to me to be part of the "Rete Rosa" network.

I grew up in Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet, which I both loved and hated. Loved it for its remarkable beauty, hated it for making me feel like I was in a box.

I studied Economics at the University of Verona. Towards the end of my studies, I felt the need to change something in my life.

The United States has always been a dream of mine. Perhaps for the so-called and famous "American dream", but above all because I would have been at least 6,585km away from home.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't want this kind of distance to stay away from my family (I love mom and dad), but I wanted to push myself completely out of my comfort zone.

I didn't want to live too close to home, otherwise, I could have returned to my nest at any time. So, 6,585km far away and a minimum 6 hour time zone seemed like a good compromise to me.
