At home we were educated without distinction of sex: my father, as a typical European, took his daughters to cut grass and sent us to clean stables, as my mother put everyone, including my brother, to help with the house chores.
So, I grew up with the happy realization that I could do anything. That whatever were my choices, I would be able to get them if I tried hard, both in study and at work.
