It took me a while to take courage and write something about myself on this (until now blank) page.
Of course, by having a blog, I have a lot to say. And a lot to say about myself, too. But still, a blank page titled “About me” is not an easy one; it is like a new chance, like a brand new start, it is both exciting and frightening at the same time.
So, in order to get it right, I will start with the basics: My name is Alessandra, I am 26 years old and I was born and raised in Italy. As many of you already know through my posts, I moved to Berlin at 22 and I am – at least for the moment – still living and working in this beautiful city.
I have a B.A. and a M.A. in Foreign Languages, Literature and Linguistics (English and German) and I am currently working full-time in the Marketing and Communications field. Every year, one of my major New Year´s resolution is to work less and devote more time to the things I like, like writing this blog.
You might be surprised, but I think I am getting better at this.
It is really hard to describe oneself in a few lines. Still, I will give it a try.
Other than writing, I am passionate about books, yoga, foreign languages, photography, music, art and fashion. I love attending long and lazy brunches, traveling and playing beach volley. I like sleeping until late, discovering new places, and spending quality time with the people I love. I am not a nutrition freak, but – having been gluten-free and lactose-free for most of my life – I am genuinely interested in nutrition and I like eating healthy. Also, I speak five languages and I am convinced that the best way to spend your money is traveling the world.
So, this is it for now. I will keep it short here, as getting to know someone is always a work in progress and you will get to know me better through my posts than through a thousand words I could write on this page about what I like and what I don´t like. Indeed, getting to know someone is a journey, and I hope that you will get the chance to stop by and walk some steps with me.
