CURRICULUM VITAE

Born by Italian parents, I grew up at the bottom of my beloved mountains in the Pays de Gex, France. Its proximity to Geneva (Switzerland) makes it an interesting area due to its internationality. There I got to encounter and get curious about many different cultures which, I believe, led me to a fairly open mind and an interest in travelling and discovering new cultures and traditions. 

Fluent in French and Italian, I also have a Cambridge Advanced English certificate with a score of 199.

I am currently looking for a position as a Part I Architectural Assistant starting in September 2021 in London. I am highly motivated and would love to join and contribute as much as I can in real life projects. Learning teamwork, communication and adaptive skills seems vital to me in the domain of Architecture. I am a hard worker who likes to listen and get constructive feedback. This job would be for me the opportunity to learn from experienced people and is something I couldn't value more. My undoubtable passion for Architecture pushes me to look for the best and innovative solutions.

PSYCHOLOGICAL PROFILE

portrait Zucchelli Bianca.jpg

This psychological profile got provided by the website 16 personalities. This psychological test is based on the Myers-Brigg method, known in the psychological world. 

The questionnaire got filled in full transparency.

 

The introduction published about my corresponding  personality is getting quoted here:

"Advocates have an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets them apart is that they are not idle dreamers, but people capable of taking concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting positive impact. They tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, but while people with this personality type can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all."

Saxophone has played an important role in my life since my early years. I have now played the Alto for 8 years and the Soprano for 2.
