Educational pathway

My journey into the realm of facilitation, education, and creative impact has been a unique blend of formal and non-formal experiences, each contributing significantly to my expertise and passion for fostering positive change in society.

While I may not have pursued a traditional university education, my extensive experience as a Facilitator and Educator has provided me with invaluable insights and skills. Through years of active involvement in diverse projects, including Erasmus+ initiatives, I've honed my abilities in non-formal education and youth empowerment. These real-world experiences have taught me that learning isn't confined to classrooms; it thrives in the dynamic, hands-on environments where I've thrived.

My role as President of 'Be The Change' has been instrumental in shaping my commitment to making a difference. This non-profit association, born in 2017, has become a platform for innovative ideas, creativity, and non-formal education. Our involvement in various projects, coupled with my position as a group leader and volunteer, has instilled a deep sense of purpose. It's here that I've realized the power of fostering active European citizenship, promoting solidarity, and nurturing the personal, social, and professional development of young people. These experiences have instilled in me a profound belief in the potential for positive change through education and creativity.

As a professional photographer and videographer, I've also harnessed the art of visual storytelling to engage and inspire. This creative background complements my educational work, allowing me to effectively communicate complex ideas and concepts.

My journey has equipped me with the skills to write and apply for projects within the Erasmus+ Programme, strengthen partnerships, and organize local events that connect with the community. My commitment to social inclusion, sustainable living, and the preservation of our planet further adds depth to my profile.

In summary, my unique blend of practical experiences, creativity, and dedication to positive change has prepared me to excel in the field of non-formal education and youth empowerment. My journey has been unconventional, but it's precisely this unconventional path that has equipped me to inspire, educate, and lead. I am ready to make a lasting impact and drive tangible results among young individuals and communities, making a positive change in the world.
