What did you like about Chieri’s offer?
“I have been following Chieri for some time now, more assiduously since Camilla has played with him. A club with such a large fan base and this family atmosphere is very attractive to me. I think it’s the perfect place to get to know the Italian league, train at a higher level and learn from my teammates and an experienced staff. Also, since I accepted the offer I have been contacted by so many nice people who have made me feel welcome right away“.
How would you describe yourself to someone who has never seen you play?
“I am a very emotional player, I always give my best and since I don’t like to lose, I always fight to the end. I have so much fun doing what I really love, and I love sharing it!“.

“I study Food Science, also for this reason one of my hobbies is cooking and baking. I’m crazy about cats, and my kitty, Kiwi, follows me on my travels wherever she goes to play“.
What are your goals for next season?
“I arrive in Chieri to learn, to be a better volleyball player, and to help the team whenever I can. I want to challenge myself and improve myself, and take advantage of every chance I have on the pitch. I also hope to learn the language a little. (In Italian) Can’t wait to meet everyone!“.
