About Me

I’ve been a Youth Worker all my life, but I discovered it when I met the Erasmus+ world. From that moment my life changed and so did my professional way: my curiosity led me, step by step, at first to participate and lead groups, then to facilitate and train youngsters from all over the world in my daily life and in international projects. I dedicate myself to what makes me burn with passion, aiming always to grow more, to stay young and to never stop learning and being amazed by the world, youth and – more than all – myself. 
Youth Worker

I am constantly leading groups of youngsters in different contexts, from local to international level, focusing especially on NEETs.

Project Manager

I write, organize, coordinate and implement Erasmus+ projects under any Key Action of the Programme.

Web Designer

More for fun than for a living, I like to experiment with coding and designing websites with CMS platforms.

Trainer and Facilitator

I design and deliver training courses, youth exchanges, summer camps and projects in general related with the Youth sector.

Producer

I ideate, record and edit social promo videos with my camera phone. I also deliver training sessions about media literacy.

Social Media Manager

Social networks and trends are my daily bread, for this I run the social media channels of the projects in which I’m involved.

Job Experiences

The most important and relevant job experiences and collaborations I had so far in the fields of Youth and Media Production.

Before understanding my vocation, I studied and worked in completely different fields. I have always volunteered with young people in summer camps and courses for animators for passion, realising then that this is my way, and I will try to travel on it with all my heart.

    Youth Worker and Trainer

    My passions lead me to spend my time working with young people, doing things for young people. Some of these experiences are voluntary ones, some not. I consider myself lucky to have had so many opportunities to challenge myself in different contexts and communities, always gaining a little bit more of experience and, more than all, happiness.

    All the Erasmus+ experiences are projects dedicated to youngsters of all Europe and partner countries, financed by the EU Community. The main aim is to promote intercultural exchange through the development of different topics.

    Essentially, I always participated in summer camps and weekly activities since I was 6. I started to be an animator when my time as a child finished; so I became an animator at first by inertia. Time let me know that that was my way and lead me to make myself more responsible as a person and so has a worker, becoming summer camps’ organizer.
