Hello! My name is Shirly and I am originally from Italy, I am a multimedia journalist, aviation - travel enthusiast, and of course, a cat lover too.

I have been studying and working in the communication sector since 2012 and many of the projects that I worked on, were linked with the aviation and travel industry.

I graduated with First in Production for Live Events and Television, which made me gain producing, directing and managing skills. An example was planning an event and developing a business strategy for the CAE Oxford Aviation Academy to raise school’s awareness. Then, by undertaking an MA course in Multimedia Journalism, it enabled me to achieve intellectual skill to work as multimedia journalist specifically in the aviation and travel sectors.

This particular niche comes from my family’s background. With a father being a pilot for Alitalia airline, and a mother who works in the management team of Genoa’s Airport (Italy), my interest for the field has always been a key part of my life since a young age.
