About me

“One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching”

My name is Samuel, I’m 21 years old and I was born in the beautiful South Tyrol, Italy. I graduated from the technological high school (TFO) "Max Valier" in Bolzano (focus on informatics and telecommunications) and I’m currently studying medical informatics at the Technical University in Vienna.

Usually I spend my free time outside in nature, without learning, without writing mails. Simply enjoying the things that really matter in life: friends and family. Be honest – What’s cozier than a nice day in the park or at the lake? Barbecue, swimming and listening to music. Just chilling. All this belongs to a perfect day. Furthermore I love playing piano and I like doing sports: Running, Fitness and Martial Arts.

It’s not easy to say what I’m going to do in the future. If this is a "good and ambitious" response remains to be seen. But who knows? I'm only 21 years young and would like to gather new experiences. This includes that things aren’t perfect all the time. Nothing ventured, nothing gained - right? It doesn’t matter whether you go straight to your goal or take up a different course to achieve it. It doesn’t matter what you do, It's all about being happy in the end.

At the beginning I wasn’t sure if studying is the right thing for me. Everything was new, everything was different. But in retrospect I’m 100% happy with my decision. The evidence is clear: Nothing in life is easy. But that's no reason to give up.
