Hello everybody, I’m Vera, an exchange student coming from the University of Bologna, Italy! I am so excited of being here and experience life at UOW! In these days I met a lot of australians with parents or relatives from my country, especially from Calabria, that is so close to my region (I live in Puglia, south east of Italy). So, I can say that I feel almost home!
My blog heading is “Metà del cielo” which means “halfway to the sky”, that is an expression used by the Brazilian prime minister Dilma Roussef to depict the rule of women in our society. Women are halfway to the sky and halfway to the earth, they balance dreams and needs of the world. Such a beautiful thought!
