We see Roberta Mancino pretty much everywhere: on magazines, on newspapers, on tv shows, on youtube, on facebook, in important international commercials, soon even into a movie. We all are also very familiar with her beautiful face and her thrilling performances: skydiving, base-jumping, shark diving, kickboxing, flying trapeze, latin dancing, posing for pictures out of a helicopter without any safety tool...
And for the few doesn't know her, here a short story.
Roberta is a dreamer that works hard to make her dreams come true. She started to modeling very young and one year later she felt in love with skydiving. Since then she kept her body fit and trained to allow herself to face the most intense and difficult sportive situations. Now she has over 11 years of skydiving experience, collecting over 7500 jumps in locations all around the world, achieving several championship titles and records. For the last 3 years Roberta has been training extensively in the art of base jumping and wing-suit flying, also taking part to big international projects. The tireless Ms. Mancino has even over 12 years of scuba diving experience, recently focusing on diving with the most dangerous sharks on earth, and over 8 years of full contact kickboxing experience. And this was just the 'professional athlete' side. Yes, because this super woman is a famous professional model as well for the last 14 years.
But how is the real Roberta Mancino? Who is 'Roby' ?
The answer is so simple that it's almost difficult to believe. She is exactly what she does and what media shows us. She has been defined a 'super hero', but her example of live is actually the result of hard work, constant focus, courage, determination and positive attitude. For years.
Roberta earned all she's got committing herself completely to her dreams, especially regarding skydiving and basejumping - I just love to fly so I’ve been training most of my life to able to do it. I invested all my money and I had to sacrifice a lot - she comments.
If you are lucky to meet her in person, you first will discover a large bright smile, two wonderful eyes and a big heart. She looks like a tender girl, but she's also a woman with a very strong personality. She's kind, honest, warm, able to involve you very easily with her funny jokes and adventurous stories. She is always thinking about 'the next project' to come, she constantly pushes herself to improve, to learn, to get better. Certainly she takes her risks to go farther in her sportive experiences, but she's never hazardous. She's also would like to have a family one day, she loves animals, she always makes sure to find the time for her beloved, especially her mom.
Roby is a very special soul and Turbolenza feels very honored to have her in the family.
ps: by the way... Happy Birthday Roby!
