Bio: 
I am a writer and a freelance journalist based in Florence, Italy. Ever since I can remember I loved stories and everything about them, from the storyteller who told them, to the paper they were written on. Because of that, I love listening to people’s stories and sometimes experience them in writing as my own. Two years ago, I created the journalistic project, The human behind the artist (Interviews with artists living in Florence), trying to draw out for the world to see, not only the “alien” side of the artist, which we can often visualize through their work, but also their human side that guided them on the path of creativity. I met wonderful human beings, great artists and beautiful minds through this project, a project that led me straight to my next, amazing book in progress, “Okay, you’re right!” A collection of life stories with Mark Abouzeid.“ I am also the editor of the bilingual newspaper “Florence is you!”, part of the Writers Group in Florence; I am teaching storytelling workshops for children and writing workshops for teenagers and adults. Currently I am involved in the “Growing Cedars in Air” project, an indie documentary about the living heritage and unique culture that has allowed Lebanese to flourish wherever they settle.
Volunteering Experience: 
In 2005 I have volunteered for 3 years in an orphanage back in my home country, Romania. My volunteer schedule was 3 days a week for two hours. My main activities were playing with the children, ages 3 to 10, teach them English, but also help the staff to take care of children with autism, psychical or psychological disabilities.
