Matteo Scarpa

Matteo ScarpaHe was born and raised in Salerno (Italy) [not Palermo!]. Matteo (or Ματθαίος now) studied Political Sciences and International Relations at the University of Salerno and European Studies as exchange student at The Hague University (The Netherlands) for six months. After that he completed his Education with the Qualification as “Europrogettista – Agente per lo sviluppo” under Campania Region Fund. He has been actively involved in the NGO’s field since many years, travelling and volunteering around Europe with the AEGEEnetwork (European Students’ Forum) and continued his experience in this field abroad with an internship in a NGO working with Media and Youth (JUVEMEDIA) in Lisbon (Portugal).

“Thessaloniki and the U.S.B. family gave me a chance to improve myself as a person and on a professional point of view. I’m trying to learn day by day from what I touch, what I read, what I see and feel; I’m trying to do little things that can have a small impact on the people around me. The city is hugging me and all around I can experience warm and real connections. What to ask more? I took this chance and I’m giving my best to put all my energy, together with the great people I work with, to realize projects that our community could benefit from”.

“We will never know where our life will bring us tomorrow; my Home is where my feet bring me now”.
