Salvatore De Fina

I always wanted to be a doctor, but I loved to write. My mind never thought to place them together, so I am stuck here.

I graduated from Tor Vergata University of Rome in 2018. I studied medicine and ended up with a career that I still have to work at. COVID 19.

It took me 12 years to perfect that and graduate, but I did it.

Tor Vergata primarily speaks English, so my certificate is in it. I also have the Italian version.


Interests

Traveling, helping others, chess, and reading.

Occupation

Anesthesiologist


Poetry is my cheap means of transportation. By the end of the poem the reader should be in a different place from where he started. I would like him to be slightly disoriented at the end, like I drove him outside of town at night and dropped him off in a cornfield.
— Billy Collins
