About Me

Discovering my calling through the Erasmus+ world, I embarked on a transformative journey as a Youth Worker. My insatiable curiosity and passion for empowering young minds have been the driving force behind my professional growth. With years of experience, I have honed my skills in group facilitation, leadership, and training, enriching the lives of countless youngsters from diverse backgrounds worldwide. I am committed to fostering inclusive and empowering environments where young individuals can thrive and realize their potential.

Every day, I find inspiration in the enthusiasm and dynamism of the youth I work with, which fuels my drive to never stop learning and exploring the world alongside them. I firmly believe that by staying young at heart, we can create meaningful and lasting impact. As a lifelong learner, I actively seek opportunities to develop both personally and professionally, always eager to be amazed by the world, the youth, and myself. Together, let’s continue to make a positive difference in the lives of young people and shape a brighter future.

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.

Through my role as a trainer and facilitator in Erasmus+ projects, I have had the privilege of being part of a transformative journey that brings together young individuals from across Europe and partner countries. These projects, generously financed by the European Union, are not just educational ventures; they are powerful platforms for fostering intercultural exchange and understanding. At the core of Erasmus+ is the objective to explore and develop various thematic areas, enriching the lives of participants through shared experiences and learning. This initiative not only bridges cultural gaps but also sows the seeds for a more cohesive and interconnected global community.

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.
