Romina was born in Soverato (CZ) so she's Calabria inside but a "world girl for choice". She studied Modern Literature at the University of Calabria where she obtained a post degree in Media Education.

At the Universidad Internaciónal de Andalucia (Spain) she deepened her academic formation attending a course for experts in Audiovisual content creation for kids.

So far her life has been a succession of choices made according to her passions: kids and youth, Media Education and traveling.

Since 2008, she has built her path jumping from project to project, cooperating with different NGOs, across East Europe and Asia- in countries such as Romania, Philippines, Timor Leste, Cambodia and India… with the only objective to spread education and help underprivileged youth to fulfill their own potential to generate a change in their communities.

In 2015, she moved in UK where she started to study Storytelling techniques and stop motion animation with the idea to gain skills and competences to approach youngster using new technologies (mobile’s camera, photo camera, video camera, software and social media applications) and non formal education to help them to become critical prosumer (person who consumes and produces media).

 

At the moment Romina lives in Edinburgh (Scotland) where she's maturing higher skills and professional "bricks" of her career development.
