Hello everyone, I’m Eleonora. I come from Rome, and I was born in 1998. I have a bachelor’s degree in Tourism Management at University “La Sapienza” of Rome, however I have a strong passion for languages. I won an Erasmus Scholarship 2 years ago to study in Madrid for six months. Now I’m living in Vancouver, I’m studying at Canadian Tourism College, in the meantime I teach Italian at the Italian Chamber of Commerce. Teaching is my biggest passion, and I really hope it becomes my main job.
