Francesca Canzone

Back in 1997, Francesca was just 11 years old when she experienced her first cultural exchange adventure while she hosted, for 15 days, a girl from the USA in her small village in Sicily. In 2003 again, another cultural exchange brought her to travel to Denmark, and when she turned 18 years old, she asked her parents to do a 4 weeks language trip to Barcelona.

Francesca has always believed that traveling is a unique opportunity to step out of one’s comfort zone and is a great way for humans to grow. That is why she invested her first salary to buy a ticket to Kenya, where she was a volunteer for 2 months in an orphanage. From this experience, Francesca learned how incredible it is to travel with a purpose!
