What you'll do

With this online experience you can enter my kitchen and prepare coffee with me, strictly from the mocha, classic or with an international touch that I added after my travels in Portugal (you will discover it only live). I will tell you about my experience as a Paralympic athlete, but also as a bionic woman who faces the prejudices of people day by day. I wait for you:)
Other things to note
If you don't like coffee or if you already know how to prepare it, enjoy the rest of the experience and prepare the questions :)

I have been practicing Paralympic athletics for about 10 years and I have achieved many important medals, including those at the London2012 and Rio2016 Paralympics. I started sharing my experience on theater stages and in schools after 2012. I like to communicate with people and answer people's curious questions, as long as they are not impertinent!

My friends and I (10 of us) had a fantastic time with Smarty. She started off by showing us how to make her favourite mocha and shared some great tips on making Italian coffee. She then shared with us her story, starting from her background, how she started her Paralympic journey, the challenges she faced along the way, what she had learned, and her experience in her first Paralympic games, which was incredibly inspiring and gave us all goosebumps! She even showed us her Paralympic medals and it was such an honour to see them up close on the screen. Smarty is an amazing host. The session was interactive, light and joyful. She graciously answered our questions and remained cheerful throughout. We were very moved by her positive vibes and are all looking forward to following and cheering her on in the upcoming Paralympics and future games. We wish her all the best! Thank you, Smarty. <3

il racconto di Smarty è piacevole ed al tempo stesso avvincente; tra l'altro è interessante scoprire alcuni aspetti delle gare paralimpiche del tutto sconosciuti al grande pubblico . Un'esperienza utile anche per i nostri ragazzi che , ascoltandola, potrebbero trovare molti spunti per riflettere sulla loro condizione di adolescenti e\o giovani uomini e donne .

Ascoltare Martina è una iniezione umanissima di energia, determinazione e motivazione. Tifiamo per lei capace di vincere alle Paraolimpiadi e nella vita !

Martina è un’atleta e una donna straordinaria, i suoi racconti e la sua grinta ci sono d'esempio e ci spingono sempre di più ad affrontare i piccoli e grandi problemi della vita e a superare i nostri limiti. Grazie a Martina per averci fatto entrare nella sua casa e sicuramente faremo tesoro dei suoi consigli...anche su come rendere speciale un caffè 😉
