Childhood & School


I was born in November 1999 in Brussels to German and Italian parents. I grew up in the European area, with the European Institutions just a few streets away. With family abroad, I travelled a lot as a child to see my grandparents, uncles, aunts and 11 cousins. With such big numbers, family gatherings were always fun.

European School

I attended the European School of Brussels III (Ixelles - EEB3) for 13 years (2004-2017). At the age of 4 I started Pre-school and a year later I was enrolled in the primary school at the age of 5. After completing five years of primary school, I started the secondary school in 2010 and graduated with the European Baccalaureate in 2017.

Alumni Europae

After having graduated, I was invited to join Alumni Europae ASBL, the alumni network of former European Schools' students. As part of the board of administrators, I was responsible for the development of the local chapter network as well as the social media presence. It was an enriching experience to work on networking former European students across the continent.
