meet Marta


Letter for my future Host Family

Hi, I’m marta.


I’m an Italian teenager of Italy. I attend the 11th grade in the high school. I’m the second child of four in my family, and I also have a cat. I’m an extrovert person and I really like talking. Indeed, I can create friendships very quickly.


Sometimes my friends say I talk too much????????... I’m quite tall for my age, I’m 15 years old; I have light brown hair and eyes and I wear glasses. I’m very mentally strong, I’m able to separate the bad situation from the life. I don’t like show my emotions in public. Despite this, I am very sensible both in my life and also with others; I love hearing and giving my opinion when people need help. In my free time, I like cooking too. Especially cakes or in general sweets.


I always dreamed the USA cakes shaped by high steps and all decorated, or those cupcakes all coloured. Here, in Italy, they are difficult to make. I really like cooking sweets, as I said before, but I don’t like eating these types of food. So usually I prepare them for my brother. I always like the things cooked by me, in general I like almost everything. However I absolutely don’t eat zucchini o when the food is too much spicy. When I don’t cook or I don’t stay with my friends, I usually study.


I love learning notions and knowing the subjects that I study at school. I go in a scientific high school, where I can learn math, physic, and other subjects. However, I also study literature, Italian, English, latin and philosophy. To know things make me very curious.


Finally, in my free time I go swimming with my team, here there are my best friends so I love going in the pool. In general, I like practicing sports or simply walking through the city. I practice synchronised swimming so you can understand I’m a creative person. In fact, I monthly make my nails and often I realised them with little drawing. I also like reading, but unfortunately I can’t read so much cause of I’m very busy. For this reason I have to be organised, I see my life with order, but not as I see my bedroom ???? ???? .


Another thing I love doing, especially in summer, because I have more time to dedicate, is summer group in the parish. When I was younger, I was animated by animators, and I always had so much fun, so I decided to animate the new children to entertain them as me when I was them age. During my childhood in the parish I created a big group and now we are all animators, so it’s even more funny for us. Even during the year I help in the parish. In fact, I animate the Catholic action of the children (ACR in Italian).


Always in summer, the lasts two years I went in a village as a volunteer. It a place that formed me every year and where there is a piece of my heart. It’s a village built specifically for people with disabilities.


The volunteering is an initiative proposes by the diocese of my town. So that’s me. I hope this can be good for you.
