3mendous team; three people, two nationalities, one challenge.
Their journey started in September 2017, when the two Italian girls, Mara the “nanny” and Franci the “drama actress”, met a truly German boy called Norman “Zoom” in Darmstadt, Germany. They didn’t think that that would have been the beginning of a great friendship, made of lunches at the UniMensa, trips around Germany and crazy parties around Darmstadt. But that was how it all began. Maybe because of their willingness to discover and meet new people, or maybe it was because of the Italian talkativeness, but this has led them to bond together and decide to participate to the RedBull Can You Make It challenge.
During the challenge, lots are going to be the crazy and awesome moments, which of course will be followed by hard and discouraging ones. But it’s not a coincidence that this team’s name is “3mendous team”; they are ready to face what’s unknown and ahead of them, use their skills and sense of adaptation to survive and get to their final destination: Amsterdam. So do you think this Guitar Hero lovers are going to make it to the end of this challenge? Cause I think they are going to ttttreeemendously make it.
I am Francesca, a 21 years-old motivated girl who studies economics and social sciences. I am originally Italian, but due to my interest in languages and internationality, I decided to study at the TU Darmstadt in order to learn German. In fact, this isn't my only experience abroad. At the age of 16 I left my comfort home stay in order to live an exchange year in the US, thus learning english and developing a huge sense of adaptation and independence.
Bad mood is not my case, I always try my best to cheer up people by showing my natural smile and happiness. Being surrounded by people makes me happy; new nationalities and ways of thinking are a great way to learn and cultivate new experiences. I am curious and ready to face new challenges, and so why not participating at the Red Bull Can You Make It?
I'm an Italian girl but I moved to Germany to study as I find it as a really organised city, and I love perfection about organisation! :)
I'm a really friendly person, I always talk to everybody, even with the puppies and with plants. I always try to make everyone around me fell comfortable and I love challenge myself. It's awesome to see that we do not have limits and RCYMI is the best chance to prove it.

I like being in challenging situations and seeking for adventures. My passion for traveling has brought me around Europe quite some times. I also lived in Bangkok and in the US for some time and I will move to South America next year. Besides that I am studying in Darmstadt and in my spare time I often do sport. Most I like skiing but if there no snow I also play soccer and volleyball.
