Hi everyone! How can I start? The starting point is always the most difficult one. It makes you feel like you have nothing to say at all. So let’s start from the basis. I’m Marina Greggio, a 24 years old Italian girl who lives in Milan. I can speak – not sure about that – five languages, obviously Italian, English, French, Spanish and Russian. This is my last year of university – yey-, as in 2020 I will graduate in International Management at The Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan. Now I’m in Washington D.C., at The Catholic University of America, for an Exchange Program. And that’s so exciting!!
I’ll stop here with boring facts about me. When I’m not a student, I write for an Italian web magazine called Alpi Fashion Magazine. I mostly write about art, travels, and fashion, and it has been five years now! I had the idea of opening a blog for several months and finally here I am. The main reason why I have opened this blog is to take you with me during this incredible adventure in the U.S.A., and also because is part of my Fashion Marketing class! Crazy, right? Nonetheless, I’m really excited to have this opportunity and I will try to make the most out of it. That’s also the reason why I called my blog Marina’s Discoveries. I love to discover. I’m curious and willing to know everything, like a baby who sees the world for the first time ever. So I hope my curiosity and my inner child will interest you!
The point is that my passion for fashion is growing each day more, and in the last few years, I started to think I could combine this passion with the one I have for marketing in a more professional way. I don’t really know how this fashion mania started to grow in me, but I just feel that is the right path for me.
What else you should know about me… I really love team sports like rugby, soccer and particularly volleyball. I’ve played it for 13 years, and unfortunately, I had to quit when I moved to Milan. I think team sports are the best, as you can share the same feelings, fears, excitements, successes and failures. Volleyball will always be in my heart and sometimes I really miss the smell of the rubber of the gym and the sound of the ball squashing on the floor. Last but not least, I love London. I really have a passion for that city. I’ve been there 12 times, and every time I go it feels like it’s the first time. I will never get tired of it!
