Me

My name is Tanya Gervasi and I am… a Woman.

Since a young age I remember I dreamt of helping people, especially children. I remember I was saying that when I grow up I will open an orphanage. Today that dream is a vision, I know it will happen … but in the meantime I am planting the seeds!
Throughout the years I have done so many different things that I have a hard time to answer the question: what do you do? So here is a schematic view…

TODAY

I wrote my first book “Della Bellezza e Del Silenzio”, in Italian, published soon in 2019.
I am producing a documentary I wrote called “Art Of Illusion – One in a Million” (it’s a British and Italian co-production).

YESTERDAY

STUDIES & TRAININGS:
Linguistic high-school in Italy -> I can speak fluently Italian, English, French, Russian, Spanish, and basic German.
Graduated from the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy -> This makes me a gastronome.
Studied at the School for Integrative Nutrition of New York -> I am a certified Health Coach!
Trained by Calm For Kids  in London -> I am a certified kids-yoga teacher .
Studied at the ABA Centre in Milan -> This centre forms experts in the Eating Disorders’ field.
Trained at the Susan Batson Studio in New York -> I am an actress.

WORK:
Here is a list of jobs I did besides MODELLING (which remains my main job till today)…
bartending and waitressing in restaurants in Milan,Turin, London, New York; writing for online magazines such as Vogue.it and Slowfood.it; Selling at farmers’ markets in Milan and New York; co-organising a Gastronomic Summer Camp for kids in Romania with Marta Pozsonyi of Slow Food Turda ; babysitting in New York, Austria, London; teaching yoga to children in Lausanne and Milan (in French and in Italian); Marketing and managing social media for food producers in Italy; storytelling; and acting of course.

I lived in Minsk, Turin, Milan, Istanbul, New York, London, and Lausanne. I feel at home in nature, while cities for me are always places of passage.

Things I Love… are not exactly things 🙂
