HEYDER LENTZ RIBEIRO
INTERNAL COMMUNICATION LEADER
IIn 2009 I started studying English Language and Literature at UFSC - Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil. By the end of the same year I began my career as an international officer working at SINTER, International Relations Office of the Federal University of Santa Catarina. I worked at SINTER for three years, and was responsible of communication with foreign partner institutions, as well as an advisor for the foreign exchange programme students in Brazil. In September 2012 I moved to Antwerp in Belgium, where I got involved with Y4PT. I always had a keen interest in culture and social aspects of our environment due to my background in music, literature and arts. Therefore, working directly with young people, I have developed a strong drive to search for project with impartial and fresh contexts and point od views.
I believe that ‘public transport’ plays a key role when aiming for a pleasant and sustainable lifestyle for a society. Therefore Y4PT represents a great opportunity for young people to be part of this process, of building a better life not only for the ‘present’ but also for the ‘future.’
