Why she joined the project

What Simona particularly likes about the project is the unique multidisciplinary collaboration. It’s as if parents can talk about different topics with different experts, who may well have slightly different views on the subject. Then they can make their own informed decision as parents.

Interests and points of interest

Simona can relax most when walking in nature, parks or city streets, where her little daughter has often accompanied her in the last two years. In addition to walking, she does yoga and pilates, or in her free time she educates herself by reading books and listening to podcasts, mostly in the field of nutrition or psychology.

Favourite food

Simona mostly enjoys Asian and Italian cuisine. Sushi, fish and seafood, spaghetti, lasagna, pizza, bun bo nambo… There’s a lot 🙂
