The dilemma and the wealth of double roots

I grew up in Munich where I acquired the German language in a natural and spontaneous way and where I came in contact with a very different mindset than Italian. Being a daughter of Italian immigrants I soon lived the difficulty of social integration. Assumptions and prejudice poured over me and I could neither confirm nor deny because I actually knew Italy very little. Divided between being an adopted daughter of a concrete and tangible reality such as Germany and the daughter of the Italy I soon developed two cultural identities that still live in me harmoniously.

My return to Italy was joyful, warm, familiar, cheerful and imaginative, qualities which I reclaimed immediately. From Germany I brought back other qualities which are introspection, rationality, trust in others and in society.

 

Training

There were a few exams missing to my master degree in Foreign Languages and yet in my heart there was a flame that burned and I wasn’t indeed 100% satisfied. The journeys which I made in my dreams visiting my friends and relatives giving them my support with an open, active and emphatic listening, were clear messages of a deep desire and index that I should study to undertake also a profession based on the helping relationship . So in 2013 I graduated in Clinical Psychology. The approaches that I could see and experience were the cognitive-behavioral approach, bioenergetics, analytical psychology. A great interest aroused in me the psychosomatic and bioenergetic component that directs an approach to man in an holistic and integrated way. So I deepened my studies with Dr. Mario Papadia traditional Chinese medicine, relaxation techniques, mental programming and the manipulation of energy systems.
 

Cambridge Speaking Examiner

I have been regarded by the organisation CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT as a Cambridge English Speaking Examiner (SE) for Young Learners and KET Exam. This gave me a deeper understanding of what’s required of my students when they go into the exam room and makes me a better teacher, as I know how to help them produce their best under pressure.
