Nadia Ellis grew up in a religious, tight-knit community in Milan, at once under a microscope, and also an outsider. Several times she picked up, packed up, and started her life anew. Her path? Going from a PhD in discourse analysis - learning the art of persuasion - to hosting her own vegan cooking show shot across Italy. We chat about having the courage to always try new things, keeping your eyes open to unexpected opportunities, and learning that our identity doesn't need to be one thing - or something other people understand.
