I was 8 when I decided I wanted to be an actress.

And I can't let that eight-year-old girl down.

I was in one of those theme parks where they make you fill out a sort of personal file and the main question was: “What do you want to be when you grow up? my answer was straight: "actress".


I started acting in my city's theater company and after various musicals and shows I understood that it was the right path.

At sixteen I realized that I loved theater, but I wanted to be able to excite people through a screen.

​My parents didn't have enough money to afford a film academy, so I started working as an entertainer in a tourist village to pay at least part of the fee.

The following year, with great effort , I started an acting course at the 09 Academy in Milan, together with the modern singing course, and of course the school.

​There were four very intense years trying to manage acting, singing, university and work, which was necessary for me to pay for everything.


​In 2019 I completed my courses, I graduated in film acting, modern singing and I graduated in foreign idioms and literatures.

​I had already participated in various short films and projects and I was officially ready to start my career, but things didn't go according to plan.

Despite the pandemic, I managed to work as an actress for IKEA Italia and make videos for them on various social networks.


In 2021 I found a way to quit my job and do an online job that would allow me to train abroad and focus on my acting career.

At the beginning of 2022 I moved to Madrid: for six months I attended intensive film acting courses. During those months I met wonderful directors and teachers who gave me the energy to return to Italy full of energy, with new skills and desire to do the work I love.


In January 2023 I decided to move to Rome for six months to find an agency and do workshops with casting directors.

I've known what I want to do with my life for seventeen years, and I have no intention of giving up.


I'm willing to study, constantly challenge myself, act in different languages, change countries, fail and then try again, but I'm not willing to give up.


​Being on the set is indescribable to me, giving life to a character means discovering new, hidden parts of myself every time, fighting against the ego and giving myself to the viewer.


 Why do I want to be an actress? Because I can't let that eight-year-old girl down.
