I admire my parents who came to Switzerland with nothing and built a wonderful life together.

If you could have a conversation with any person in the world, living or dead, who would it be and why?

With my Italian grandfather. Now that I am grown up there are so many questions I would love to ask him to understand and appreciate him even more than I already did the time he was with us.

What is the best advice you have been given?

Don’t plan, and live the moment and appreciate what you have NOW.

Since I am a fashion student and I had the opportunity to study history of fashion, I would say every decade has its charm and importance in the history of dressing.

What are you most proud of?

I am proud of everything I achieved so far, to have trusted and followed my dreams. It’s important to be proud about what you have instead of troubling of what you don’t have (yet).
