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


Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
— Brené Brown
