Medical Student

University of Rome Tor Vergata


My name is Bianca, I’m 19 years old (class of 1999) and I come from Patti, a small town in Sicily, near Messina. One year ago, after graduating from my town’s high school, I signed up for Tor Vergata’s Medicine Program taught in English and I currently attend the second year. It wasn’t exactly in my plans originally but, looking back on it, it was the best choice of my life.


I enjoy language and literature, in particular I like reading novels and poetry books; since I come from a city near the sea, I’ve always loved the opportunity to be around water and to swim in it. I very much enjoy nature and green scenery, which is why I often take long walks in parks. I am not a sporty person and I really love food, in particular cheese. I don’t know what type of doctor I want to be but I’ll work hard to become the best one I can be.
