Roberta’s undaunting personality is one highlight of her life and career that speaks about her before she does herself. She believes that challenges are a fundamental part of life and they encourage us to come out as who we really are. “I always trust my inner instinct, on which I build relationships and goals. Certainly, there is no lack of dedication and as far as possible I always try to ward off fear with small challenges that I can easily conquer. I always give myself two rules even when a day or a situation puts me to the test, think positively, and analyze all points of view. Giving in to discouragement must be the last choice.” says Roberta.

And a way out to be present with my family, with my young son, and to dedicate quality time to myself.”

But she also believes that things have changed and so is the approach of workingwomen who themselves have adopted it. It’s been seen that there is greater self-awareness, a keen interest in defending own rights, and the courage of not giving up on bigger dreams.

But when asked to paint her ideas about the strategies she follows for a successful career, the professional stated, “There are no strategies. If you want to achieve a goal you have to believe in yourself, and stick to your own values. Let your work talk. And don’t stop believing in the meritocracy.”
