Being appointed UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador at just 23 years old is more than an honor, it’s an achievement and a duty which I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life. Of course, I want to be recognized as a great player, but also as a citizen who tried to make a difference. I’ve been fighting for education since I was 19 years old, and my Institute is gradually developing in Brazil. Thanks to the support of UNESCO, we’re now going to have a positive impact on the whole world.
Receiving this invitation to be a UNESCO ambassador at the age of 23 is more than an honor, it is a victory and a duty that I will carry throughout my life. Of course I want to be remembered as a great player, but also as a citizen who strived to do something different. My fight is for education. My Institute grows month by month in Brazil and, with the power that is UNESCO, we will impact the world.
