For the first 20 years of her life Venusia lived at the same address in Abruzzo, Italy, with loads of dreams. In 2003 she left for the Erasmus programme, and never went back! She has worked as researcher in the natural resources field in several African countries. She then moved to Norway, to join her husband, and started working in adult training for the Norwegian Scout Association. She has many passions, among which photography, speaks four languages and is temporarily in Strasbourg, France, looking for a new direction while she raises her two wonderful children.
