Hi, I’m Camilla! I come from Chiaravalle but now I live in Macerata. I’m creative, careful, shy and I adore working with children. Hi, I’m Chiara! I live in Petriolo and I like playing the flute. I’m joyful, available, anxious before the exams and I love eating only sweets. Finally I'm Elisa, I come from Monte San Vito and, like Camilla, now I stay in Macerata.

I’m sociable, nice, hasty and I address the situations in a rational way.
