I’m Andrea Cabassi, born in Parma in 1975 (you can calculate my age). Ex corporate manager, now I travel and write books. In 1998 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a chronic bowel autoimmune disease classified amongst the IBD’s (Invisible Body Disabilities).
I’m a food scientist and change, travel and curiosities have always been my passions. In the free time of my past 9-5 jobs, I realized I have a creative mind.
In 2015, turned 40, I had an amazing position at work and a so-called ideal life, but I wasn’t happy. I was stuck in social expectations (study, find a job, get married, have kids, and so on). So, despite my disease, I gave up my old life to catch a flight and “follow my gut”. Or maybe the colon?
The first step of my new life was a corporate position in Dubai, but I soon realized it was the prelude to my real inside metamorphosis. Getting to such a change and living it was sensational, but also really hard. I talk about it in my book Let me insist – I changed my life at 40, with the idea I could help other troubled souls (like mine). 😉
