Introducing Our Newest Volunteer: Welcome Betty!
Ciao! My name is Betty Mattei and I am a new volunteer here at Aura’s House. I’m currently a junior at The American University of Rome majoring in Film and Digital Media.
I am an Italian-American originally from Philadelphia who traveled to Rome looking for a little bit of adventure, but I’ve found so much more! I am a lifelong lover of good books, good food, and good laughs—three things I wish to bring to people all around the world.
For a long time I have been eager to become a volunteer, but I wasn’t sure where or how to begin. Aura’s House is a fantastic opportunity for young students like myself to donate their time and skill to assist in a little bit of world changing. This is something I think a lot of young people struggle with– a desire to help, but afraid to put themselves out there. I’m eager to share my experience at Aura’s House with my peers, and to hopefully motivate them into action.
I am excited for my time with Aura’s House to grow into a lifelong commitment to volunteering for the greater good of humanity.
