Do you have any advice for life?
Having a sense of community has kept me alive in London. I live with my family, my sister and cousin, and I go to HoM because it feels like family there too. My advice, not for the world, because that's a bit too ambitious, but for London or any other big city, is to stay warm and don't let the hurry cool you. The city is cold enough in itself, so the people in it should try to create a welcoming atmosphere.
What's your passion?
I love rock climbing, but also any other non-team sports, swimming, surfing, biking and I want to get into triathlon. I also love food, cooking, reading about nutrition, the impacts of food production and food security .
Happiest moment in life?
Hard to say, I remember saying 'this is the best day of my life' hundreds of times, but I can't remember a single one right now. I think it generally involves my family and friends, traveling, and feeling accomplished in what I'm doing.
Who is the most influential person in your life?
That's my sister, my twin sister. Having lived almost exactly the same life, we have ended up quite different from each other. When we were kids, I would copy and follow her everywhere. Now I can't do that, because I'm older and I should have my own opinions, but her advice remains the most valuable to me.
Favourite place in the world?
Ibiza, but not for the party. My uncles live there, and I used to spend all my summers there since I was born. I associate it to the happiest moments of my life, and just the smell of the island when I arrive brings me back to those moments.
The one thing you would take to a deserted island?
A dog, it would probably be the best company I could have .
How do you pass your time at HoM?
Researching for my master's thesis about the impacts of agriculture and urbanization on biodiversity .
Tahini is my biggest passion.
