Sabina Di Maio was born in the multicultural city of Palermo (Sicily). After obtaining the Diploma in classical studies, she got the degree in Biological Sciences in 2004 at the University of Palermo and three years later also the Ph.D. in Human Nutrition. Next, she moved to Tuscany to complete a five years Specialization Postgraduate School in Microbiology and Virology at the University of Pisa.
In 2015, Sabina and her husband moved to the United States, where she spent one year and a half at the National Cancer Institute (NIH) of Bethesda (MD) performing research in virology.
In the United States, Sabina became aware of the great love of American people for the culture, the language and the history of her beloved home country. This discovery prompted her to explore a new passion: promoting and spreading the Italian culture and language. With this in mind, in 2017 she joined the Italian Cultural Society of Washington D.C., where she is working as instructor of the Italian Language Program.
Sabina always finds time to read books and to explore different cuisines, her second passion.
