I was born and raised in Modena, Italy where I started playing volleyball since I was very young. After completing my high school diploma in foreign languages (I speak Italian, English, Spanish and French), I decided to move to the States to pursue my academic and athletic career. With the help of Sportlinx360, which supports young student-athletes in the development of academic and sports experiences, I won a full scholarship at State College of Florida. After one year I moved to St. Louis, where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Sports Management at Missouri Baptist University while playing for the school's volleyball team. After graduation, I went back to Italy because I wanted to play professional volleyball and be closer to my family. I also started working as a Recruiter Coordinator for Sportlinx360 as I've always wanted to help other aspiring student-athletes make their dreams come true. The American experience has truly changed my life and I will forever be grateful for everything I learnt. I am now excited to share my expertise and assist any future student-athlete who would like to begin a new adventure abroad.
