I’m lucky! I have no doubt about it, because in my transition I have diverse allies for different kinds of support: moral, financial, motivational and also support to encourage my resourcefulness.
The allied object: a book given to me by my first theatre director with the dedication “perché pochi sono al mondo i ‘favoriti’ dalle storie” (because there are few people in the world who are “favourite” from the stories). This sentence makes me feel with magical protection and it gives me a lot of courage.
The allied place: my island of happiness, a Sicilian village between the sea and the volcano. When I seem to have strayed off course, I go back there because in that place I can always bring together the pieces of my puzzle.
The allied people:
the man I loved most in my life who forced me to make a categorical choice. So I figured out what I really want to do and to be, what I was not willing to give up.
My parents because they give me all the financial support they can, even though they often didn’t agree with my choices and we still unable to understand much, but I earned their trust. The desire to reward them is a very strong incentive to do always better.
My 3 best friends because they insult me when I say that I’m not able to do something, they helped me when I had financial problems and they make me laugh a lot.
My thesis supervisor and an economist-musician known through an interview because thanks to them I often do things that seem bigger than me and maybe some really are, but so I can understand if I have the potential to do what I want to do, if some of these potentialities have already become true abilities and work to improve them.
Two sicilian women with bright eyes who went back in Sicily after many years abroad because they love our land and they believe that we can improve it. I’m working with them inside The Hub Sicily, that they founded, and their brightness makes me thinking that we can make Sicily one of the most beautiful place in the world.
