The National Youth Commission (NYC) has appointed actor Matteo Guidicelli as an ambassador to the youth.
On Facebook, the NYC has announced that they have chosen Matteo as one of their ambassadors. They highlighted the contribution of Matteo as a military reservist and as an inspiration to the youth.
Their statement reads, “The NYC officially designates the Filipino actor and Philippine Army reservist, Mr. Matteo Guidicelli, as a Youth Ambassador of the NYC based on the Commission’s Resolution No. 26, series of 2019, that also recognizes his significant contribution to youth development.
They added, “Mr. Guidicelli’s patriotism and nationalism, initially manifested by being a military reservist, is expected to serve as inspiration and encouragement for the Filipino youth in the fulfillment of their role in nation-building.”
The council said they are hopeful that Matteo will continue empowering the Filipino youth to become good and responsible citizens. “The NYC looks forward to further enhance youth empowerment by designating youth ambassadors who can be role models of good citizenship through this recognition,” the statement said.
Matteo acknowledged the recognition and posted about the appointment; saying, “An honor and privilege. Thank you.”
Last April 2019, Matteo was sworn in as a member of the Army reserve command after he completed a 30-day Scout Ranger training program. He is currently a 2nd Lieutenant of the Army reserve.
Last month when Taal Volcano erupted, Matteo led his fellow soldiers in relief operations for more than 200 families at an evacuation center in Barangay Poblacion 3, Sto. Tomas City, Batangas. He also asked for more donations to be sent to the affected families.
