"JAA CLUB is part of my mission "I want people to be well""

    I was born in Argentina with Italian roots. I moved to Europe after graduation in 2002 with a little baby and my husband.

    I first arrived in France where we lived 4 years, in the Bourgogne region. This period allowed us to adapt to the European culture. The stork has then brought us the 4th member of the family. We moved to Luxembourg for work reasons at the end of 2006 for 3 max. 5 years and finally we have stayed much longer…  This December 2017  we will celebrate almost 11 years.

    What studies did you do and what is your main activity?

    I thought that with the title of Engineer in Agricultural Production I would collaborate to eradicate hunger in the world. Apart from fulfilling my parents’ dream of having a daughter being an Engineer…But I quickly realised that it was not enough and meanwhile, I moved to Europe.

    I wen through many changes:  I had to adapt to a new place, to the people and to the work sector.

    Working a few years in the deepest materialistic world (financial sector) convinced me to make a drastic turn in life.
    I then made several experiences, beside my working life,  that helped me continue the path of my soul and now I realize that all began a long time ago in my own house with my dad …
    I have first approached the art sector, that I have always loved, by creating a Foundation to help artistic projects.
    But I realized recently that this project was not completely in line with my deep inner-self.

    And the moment I started questioning more about myself … Gym For Life appeared. This coaching method helped me decluttering my mind,  channeling the emotions, providing me tools to get more focused on my real will.
    As a result, I went to a new-reinvention and I decided to study to be a holistic health coach. Since I found Gym For Life very inspirational for me, this year I helped organizing the luxembourgish workshop to share the knowledge of this beautiful project that helps people to be well.

    Tell us few things that have surprised you when first arrived in Luxembourg?

    The beauty of the country and green spaces. Small town with the services of a big city. We all have an accent.

    Can you give me 3 adjectives to describe your life in the Grand Duchy?

    Busy, simple, social.

    What aspect of Luxembourg would you miss if you had to leave tomorrow?

    The proximity of recreational green spaces in the middle of the city.

    Tell us what is your preferred district in Luxembourg and why?

    GrundClausen. It has beautiful walks with cafes and restaurants, with music and places to dance. Everything I like …..

    Do you often go out to eat and if yes what is your favourite type of cuisine?

    Yes, we go often out to eat. We like restos that serve us food with local products, where we feel the food is made with lots of love … Simple but tasty.

    Can you give me one word in your language which is impossible to translate into other languages?

    “Mateada”: it is a meeting in which several people come together to drink mate instead of tea. It is a moment for sharing, much philosophy, and we drink liters and liters of water.

    For which reason have you decided to join the JUST ARRIVED Ambassadors club?

    To be useful to my fellows coming to Luxembourg and to facilitate their adaptation to this new country.
    Also,  to enable other communities to know the Argentinian culture or habits that we can share in Luxembourg.
