From a very young age she developed her love for singing whilst performing in choirs, musicals and church. After moving back to Milan, she started studying Jazz at the age of 16 with the renowned Italian Jazz singer Tiziana Ghiglioni at the Academy of Music in Milan. She moved to London in 1999 to continue her music studies at the University Of Surrey and then Goldsmiths College.
