Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Thank you for this opportunity! I have always enjoyed traveling and documenting my travels, taking photos and expressing my opinion on various topics during the trip. Actually, I simply did what I’ve always done but sharing it on Instagram, for me Instagram is a logbook.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
Travel is always a lesson for me. It has always been a goal in my life to travel to help others. I am a very curious person; I always want to know everything around me so when I travel, I like to completely immerse myself in the culture of the place that I’m visiting. I like to eat their food, know their problems, listen to their music, try on their clothes, walk their streets. I remember a particular journey that I faced a few years ago: during my stay in that place I met many people, including those who in that country were considered “untouchable”. Smart people, hard workers, honest people, who for the simple “fault” of being born to parents gravediggers or butchers were not considered by society. This caste exists in many countries still today in 2020 this made me shiver.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
The only advice I can give is to be curious! very curious! to truly immerse yourself in the cultures of the places that you visit, without prejudice and with an open mind, you must be avid explorers of life!.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Without any doubt, the fact of being raised in a family where travel is essential and VERY important has helped me a lot to develop this open-minded and this desire to know and travel consistently. I remember years ago when I was in Vietnam with my dad, I saw the local men shave with tweezers. A gesture that would seem absurd to a European man, yet in Vietnam the majority of men shaved their beards like this. The reason lies in the fact that shaving the beard with tweezers allows the beard not to grow back strong. The things you can learn traveling, you will not learn them in books.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I share what I learn during my travels, the more you know the people around you the more you understand that in the end, we are all the same. And this is the message that I want to get to people, in the end, we are all the same. I really want to make it clear that it is important to NEVER judge those you don’t know.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
