The Heroine’s Journey of Serena Ventre

What is the best thing that I love about my work ? What I love most about what I’m doing? Definitely the infinity of creativity that I can express through any means at my disposal such as writing, drawing and many others. I think the connection between any kind of “artistic elements” and the human creative process to transform it can be a second identity card.
What is my idea of happiness? I have no doubt: happiness for me is nothing in particular, just waking up every single morning of my life saying to my self “You enjoy what you do, you are healthy and people important in your life are also, you love and are loved that’s enough”.
What is my greatest fear? Not having persevered enough in what I believe and dream for achieving my own goals.
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? What I mostly deplore in my character is giving the words’s too much importance and sometimes being downcast and clouded by them. Nonetheless, I don’t always see this as a synonymous of weakness but contrariwise of a strong empathy. I think that before becoming whatever you dream to be, you have to accept all your quality and learn how to make the most of them. 
Which living people in my profession do I most admire? None, by the moment. I mean, I can say that I admire the great personality translated into what create most of the people who I follow for sure, but I don’t have one in particular. By the way, there’s a living person in an other sector who I really admire: Anthony Robbins without doubt. 
What is my greatest extravagance? The enthusiasm and energy that I put into everything.
On what occasion would I lie? There’s not a particular occasion. I’d only lie if it was absolutely necessary for good purpose sure!
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? The Darwinian theory of the strongest not always related to merit and skill. 
When and Where was I the happiest, in my work? Currently I have yet to find a place that really makes me “happiest”. 
If I could, what would I change about myself? Nothing or rather my too much apprehension but I’ve learn and I still work to love and improve all my quality, I really love the way I look at life. I would never change it.
What is my greatest achievement in work? Having learned to always persevere to get the best part of yourself. Evolution always!
Where would I most like to live? I’m Italian and as much as I may love to travel I could never imagine my life in other part of the world unlike Italy. 
What is my most marked characteristic? My smile!
What is my most inspirational location, in my city? I live in a small country quite disused but I actually moved in Milano for my studies and I didn’t find a place like my big garden here yet! I feel very lucky to have one. Nonetheless, I love walking in the mountains and wherever I go I always find a little place of my own that recharges me completely.
What is my favourite place to eat and drink, in my city? No matter where but with whom I decide to spend my time. Anyway I don’t have one in particular, I love changing always but I have a weakness for the pub with softer lights and small inns lost in the mountains.
What books influenced my life and how? I think every single book can changes you. One important was given to me by someone special: “Ikigai” of Bettina Lemke. This book helped me to understand the importance to open the mind and try to look inside in a more introspective way. If you know yourself you can really achieve every goals in your life. However I’m sure that I’m still reading another book of Anthony Robbins that will influence and change my life.

You Only Die Once. What music would I listen on my last day? Even when I will die I’m sure that the music will never stop in my soul and it is quite complicated to choose only one. I think I would listen the voice of someone I love. 
Who is my hero or heroines in fiction? Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Eyre, Peter pan and many many others.
Who are my heroes and heroines in real life?  My mum.
Which movie would I recommend to see once in a lifetime? I would surely recommend any old disney film because they are plenty of value which everyone should keep in mind and remember. 
What role play stories in my life and work? Each of us has a story to tell and I think that is very important to know how to listen. I mean “listen” not “hear”. We all learn from our past, our present and all the people and everything can increase our baggage of life.
What do the words “You are the storyteller of your own life ” to me? It means that I’m the only one who can decide about my life,my feeling. I have the most important power, I’m the creator of my life and not the manager.
Who is my greatest fan, sponsor, partner in crime? My twin soul, the only one who always believed in me and supported me. The simple word “best-friend” doesn’t suit the importance this person has in my life.
Which people or companies would I like to work with in 2021? Balmain, Versace, Dior are only the iceberg’s tip! I have so many others for this 2021.
Which people in my profession who can make a real difference in my creative career would I love to meet in 2021? First at all I think I would meet an Italian businesswoman that I respect very much and who inspire me a lot: Anna Dello Russo. Another person that I would definitely meet  in 2021 to make a difference in my creative career is absolutely Olivier Rousteing.
What project, in 2021, am I looking forward to work on? My only project for this 2021 is to obtain my master’s degree and then to fully dive myself into the research and satisfaction of my goals in the fashion system.

What do the words “Passion Never Retires” mean to me? Passion is important but needs a lot of dedication, ambition, energy, focus, patience and discipline to become the perfect recipe in order to success.
