I treated with respect every project in which I was invited to participate, I considered it a gift from destiny. Each project meant to me a new meeting, an occasion to prove my strength, to discover my limits, to explore my soul and search, among my memories and others, what is representative, what is strong and what is in the end human.“(Maia Morgenstern)
