After attending a Foreign Language High School, she graduated from Venetian University "Ca' Foscari" with a degree in Mandarin Language and Literature. She studied in England and lived and worked as an interpreter in China to improve her English and Mandarin. Being a Tour Assistant, she worked for several years with Chinese delegations and American groups, travelling with them both in Italy and Europe. Her love for the Arts and History of Venice had grown so much that she decided to study for the specific exam to become a Qualified Professional Tourist Guide in Venice (passing a tough test: 3 written tests and seven oral tests).
