Transcript of Open Books

My name is Caterina Merenda.

I figure that it's best for you to know a little bit about me before I dive into the professional aspect of my life.

Reading has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I truly believe my days spent reading have developed me mentally and have cultivated the person I am today. I also like to think of myself as a film buff and especially have a soft spot for classics.

I am also very fond of music and have been playing jazz saxophone for several years.

If I don't have my nose in a book or making music, you'll most likely catch me strolling through nature on any summer's day.
