DiscovrTV taught me a lot. I did not only have the chance to meet talented and inspiring people from all over the world, but as well, I recognised how much I love music and moderating.
Marie: What is your name and what is your position/location in DiscovrTV?
Giulia: I am Giulia, 24 years old and I am an enthusiastic moderator for DiscovrTV Zurich since 2017.
Marie: What is your personal "DiscovrTV story" - how did you get involved? When?
Giulia: I had the chance to get to know BalconyTV, which was the first version of DiscovrTV, by coincidence. My passion for music and concerts lead me to listen to acoustic versions and concerts online on Youtube. Like that, I discovered the channel of BalconyTV and fell in love with their concept. After doing some research about the different locations, I recognised that they’re as well present in Switzerland. As I am Swiss and currently living in Zurich I got in contact with them. Chance brought it about that they were searching for a new moderator, so here I am now. Still a proud part of the team, still pursuing my passion for moderating.
Marie: Could you look back and tell me, what have you learned so far?
Giulia: DiscovrTV taught me a lot. I did not only have the chance to meet talented and inspiring people from all over the world, but as well, I recognised how much I love music and moderating. Through our sessions I learned to perfect my skills in the area of moderating as well as organising and hosting such an event as a shoot. Additionally, during the years at DiscovrTV Zurich, I can easily adapt to all the interesting situations that occur during recording our sessions and I can enjoy hosting bands from all kind of backgrounds and locations.
Marie: That’s amazing. Thank you for what you do. Tell me, what is your motivation in doing this?
Giulia: DiscovrTV Zurich combines my passion for music, moderating and getting to know people from all over the place. I am a huge fan of the DiscovrTV team and I am doing this as well because I am enjoying to work with my guys from DiscovrTV Zurich.
Marie: What's it like being a part of the team and what's the spirit like?
Giulia: The whole team is overflowing with vitality and I love the atmosphere it creates. During our sessions we have so much fun and we support each other in all the tasks. Also, I found some friends for life, meeting them beyond DiscovrTV.
Marie: What else do you do - your job, your hobbies, education, aspirations, what else should we know about you?
Giulia: I am Giulia, who finished her studies in economics and environmental sciences. I am highly interested in music, I passionately play the piano since I was a little girl, and I love going to cultural events in arts. Besides moderating, I regularly do sports and fine dining with friends and family :) In the future, I will move out of Zurich, but as DiscovrTV is spread all over the world I am sure to always be part of the proud and amazing team of DiscovrTV.
