My story is the opposite for each of the many articles your nominated torch bearers that can be read in Sunday's newspapers. I was born in Volterra, an historical town situated in the heart of Tuscany. I came to London straight after my degree and managed to find an excellent graduate trainee position and several intersting jobs folled. Over the years London has given me the opportunity to do well, learn new things. Each year i go back home to visit my school and give speeches and career advice to pupils going to university. I encourage them to listen to their dreams and go for opportunities like I did.
