My name is Lissette and I was born in Ecuador. I am 26 years old and spent my childhood in my country of origin and the other half of my life in Italy. I am proud of my roots and my country but I also feel I belong to this land that has adopted me. Simply put, I love dancing salsa and I adore eating pasta. I am Italian when I go back to Ecuador and a foreigner when I return to Italy.
I don’t mind this. I consider myself a citizen of the world and have learned to mediate between two cultures I have made my own; becoming something new, different and beautiful. For me mutual understanding is vital: with Migrantour therefore, I tell the story of myself through the streets of this city where I grew up. Milan is a city with many faces that you love or hate from day to day, but for me it’s home.
