What about me? I’m from Italy and came to England to find work – and I now work in a restaurant as a sous chef. I have always been involved in social work, to help others. I worked with many charities in Italy, where I planned and contributed to many activities in this area. It’s one thing that makes me feel good, so it was natural for me to look for an organisation in England in which I which I could contribute and participate. As soon as I arrived in York, I searched the Internet to find out about the various groups and organisations; their activities and aims. I was was particularly struck by YUMI, because it allows people of different cultures to socialize, create multicultural events and it promotes the development of people.

I have many interests and hobbies, I like to cook, read, cycle and play the guitar. I also write stories and draw. I'm curious about the world - I like to travel and explore.
