«I think that every meeting which happens in life is a gift»: in this way, Alessandra Buondonno presented herself to the San Donato Institute’s students on the 4th “One Team…for my life!” session, held the 3rd of December.
Alessandra is an educator in a community for minors, for 19 years she worked as manager in a rehab community.
Drug is a difficult problem to deal with: a lot of times it’s tackle in a statistics way or people prefer don’t talk about it. Alessandra started the session talking about herself. She put aside her notes, watching the students in their eyes and she chose to follow the impact that the meeting with them suggested.
She knows what means to feel suddenly lost in life, she tried it very young and for long years. But she tried also the joy to find again her own path by meeting with some adults that showed Alessandra that life is beautiful and now she wants to communicate this beauty to others. Alessandra said that sport is like life: “Everyone needs to discover the fundamentals, their own abilities and to use them well in life, not living passively. It’s important to discover and to fight for what you like and you wish, but it’s also important to have the will to overcome limits and obstacles. At the end, after a long debate with the students, Alessandra say goodbye to each one of them with a video and a cuddle.
The group was ready to go to play on the court with the Dinamo Sassari’s special guests captain Manuel Vanuzzo, Shane Lawal, Matteo Formenti and David Logan and the One Team coaches Massimo Bisin and Paolo Citrini.
At 7pm, as always, the students came back home with the Dinamo Official shuttle and their minds were already focused to the next session.
