Who has been your biggest motivator in your career?
My family. They supported me in every moment and after my disease they helped me to start again with fencing. At the beginning, I didn’t want to try wheelchair fencing because I considered it a “sport for disabled people” compared to standing fencing that I practised before. I was wrong! Wheelchair fencing is so cool: you can’t escape; you have to face the opponent and fight for the win!
How have your personal struggles helped you in achieving the greatest goals in life?
I think that you have to enjoy every minute of your life! For me, you can’t live your life complaining yourself and getting depressed. Life is a beautiful journey and a precious gift, this is an important awareness that can change the way of seeing life and can help to stay focused!
Social media is instrumental these days. How do you make the most of it to inspire your following of 984K?
Through social media I show especially my everyday life as the days spent at the university and the training sessions. I don’t consider myself an inspiring person but I’m simply myself and I try to send a positive message that can helps somebody around the world.
