About: Giulia Muntoni has worked for the English Civil Service for nine years after completing her degree in Greek Archaeology. She recently returned to her native Italy after overcoming breast cancer in 2014, a true “watershed” moment in her life. Ever since, she has been talking, writing and publishing about her experience, giving voice to a passion for communication that had always inspired her to reach out to others with empathy. Her positive approach to life keeps motivating her to embark on new adventures, such as the TEDx talk, hoping to inspire her generation and the new ones to be proactive builders of their own world. Amongst her many dreams, there is the desire to help raise awareness of cancer, and also the aspiration to become a motivational speaker.
