communities through sport. Being a project coordinator gives me opportunity to implement these practices."
Sports Events Coordinator

My destiny is to help people to live a better quality of life. This goal is fundamental to help them live a healthy lifestyle and do active sports.

I truly believe sports is one of the best ways to connect people, share ideas and build a society, and BAIS a perfect place for it.

Happy and honoured to bring my experience as a member of the BAIS team!"
