In what year did you start teaching? 2014 (2021 at TDChristian).

Where did you grow up? Verona, Italy.

What do you like to do in your spare time?  Going on walks with my puppy, listening to music, singing in my worship team in church, watching movies with my family and reading a good book!

What famous person or historial figure would you like to have dinner with?: Esther from the Bible. This woman not only preserved the people of Israel but is a reminder of how God uses ordinary people to accomplish His plans. Also Martin Luther. I would ask him how he was feeling as he approached the door of the Castle Church in Germany, and nailed a piece of paper to it containing the 95 revolutionary opinions that would begin the Protestant Reformation.

What piece of advice would you give your high school self? Be present, get out of your comfort zone and get involved! These are going to be some of the best years of your lives. TD Christian is a place where you can make life long friendships, learn more about yourself and God.

Do you have any pets? I have a 10 month old cocker spaniel named Toby! He loves to cuddle, go on adventures and eat (all the time!).

Favourite or meaningful Bible passage? "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope" (Jeremiah 29:11). Growing up, this was one of the most meaningful Bible passages, especially in difficult of confusing times. It reminds me that God has good plans for our lives, cares about the smallest details and is always faithful! He will make sure that it will all work out in the end; we can always count on Him.
