Always passionate about children’s and young people’s rights, she started her professional career as a Project Manager with a not-for-profit organization focusing on youth and with the aim to make the world a better place for them. In this role, she managed various projects in the field of youth and led different educational programmes for children and young people to empower them with the tools to make a change.

In 2019 Arianna joined SOS Children’s Villages International where she works alongside children, young people and colleagues from all over the world to strengthen child and youth participation. In her role, she also coordinates a project for young changemakers who have initiated projects with a great social impact. This engagement and many more have contributed to her growing passion for social entrepreneurship and the influence that can have it on our societies.
