When she was 11 she built alone her first robot, following the videos on YouTube (at the time in English only). When she was 13 she was appointed Digital Champion for the municipality of Alessandria. At 14 she was speaker at TEDx Milano Women and at 15 she spent the Summer at MIT in Boston as Senior Tester of Duckietown project. There she found out learning can be fun and when she was 16 she opened her own school following the 10 rules created by herself. In 2018 she was listed among the Italian InspiringFifty. In 2019 she is listed by Forbes among 100 Under 30 who will change the future.

Be careful, he bites! Find out more. Read more
