Which player most inspired you and why? I don't have one player who inspired me; I really like how Lotta Schelin and Marta play.

Which coach most inspired you? Rosario Amendola, assistant coach for the national team.

What was the best advice they gave you? He always wants the best in every training session we do and this helps to give more and more.

Best player you've played with? Melania Gabbiadini

Toughest opponent? Marta

What are your memories of your first club as a child? I was six. The first game of my life I played with boys older than me. I was on the bench, and when the coach put me into the game I was excited. In that game I scored my first goal. It was an unforgettable experience.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Enjoy, enjoy and enjoy again. Play in a boys team as long as possible. Always work hard to improve yourself.
