Rebecca’s Story

I was born in Italy with two Italian parents. We moved to Australia when I was young lived there for a couple years and afterwards came here to finish secondary school. Contanstly migrating , visiting Asian countries (feeling an attachment like sort of home) and living in western life, I never had a home and feel as a sort of migrant to the whole world. Growing up with completely different cultures consistently I can’t identify myself as one nationality so even though on my passport it says I am Italian, I am just one of the seven billion people living in this world , accepting and absorbing any culture and lifestyle that comes my way :)
