Stefano was such a kindhearted gentleman. He always walked around with the biggest smile, the catchiest laugh, and gave the best bear hugs. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it, whether it was his teachers, his friends, his family or strangers.
He grew up learning to love helping others, whether doing arts and crafts with the homeless in a shelter or feeding them with his family on the streets of Puerto Rico; he was always willing to help them better their lives.
Stefano also loved traveling and learning about other people and their cultures. In his short lifetime he travelled to more places than many adults ever get to visit. It was his passion of travelling and helping others that led him to decide to move back to Holland to finish his high school and college studies and then move on to becoming a dignitary with the hopes of someday changing the world one heart at a time.
Although Stefano was not able to move back to Holland and fulfill his dreams, through our foundation we wish to honor his legacy and help change the world, one heart at a time.
