Since she was 9 years old, Ms Sciberras had books as her best friends. She would sit quietly in her study and read for hours upon hours, never getting tired. As she grew older her thirst for knowledge focused more on history. Even though she didn’t choose such a subject at secondary level, later on, after her first job at a tourist agency, she was inspired to become a tourist guide. Although she was in her element Carmen still wanted to discover more and the Maltese islands weren’t going to do it. Unfortunately travelling was out of the question at that time as she had other priorities such as the family. After winning the battle against cancer, she realized that life is too short and felt like it was time to finally do what she always dreamed of doing. Every year Carmen, now travels to two different countries and is sure to pick up books about the history, along with little models of her most memorable tourist attractions. She is a woman of great knowledge, who combines all that she has read and heard into one passionate experience every time she is out guiding.
