I grew up in the Italian Alps, where I developed a great love for nature and the outdoors by going for long mountain walks and revelling in the stunning scenery. After high school, I moved to the UK to study Politics and East European Studies at University College London. Here I became passionate about sociology and sustainable development, and I feel very fortunate to be translating articles for LifeGate on topics about which I care deeply. Translation is also a great outlet for my love of language and writing, and the process makes me feel connected to the different cultural environment that each language is an expression of.
