Why would I like to meet my neighbors in the Falkland Islands?

Adriano Modarelli won a scholarship from the British government to get to know the Falkland Islands in a cultural exchange along with other students from the region.

Stories of people

 Adriano Modarelli  is 19 years old and pursued an actuary career at Universidad del Salvador. He is a native of Campana ( Buenos Aires ) and in a few months he will fulfill what, for him, became a dream: he will  know the  Falkland Islands  .

It all started when a friend proposed to participate in a student competition organized by the  British government . I was supposed to send a video answering the question  “why would I like to meet my neighbors in the Falklands? ”. Adriano recorded his answer in English, his sister filmed it and he edited it. The one-minute video was the  winner of a scholarship  to experience a stay of cultural, environmental and economic knowledge.

Adriano was the Argentine elected among 200 applicants. In January 2020, you will travel to the  Falkland Islands , where you will live a week in the home of a local family. The scholarship is solved by the island government and coordinated by the British embassies in   Argentina ,  Brazil , Chile and  Uruguay  .

The purpose of the competition is to promote  cultural exchange  between communities, to draw bonds of knowledge and understanding between the islands and the continent, experience the unique nature of the place, taste its food, adopt their habits and  traditions , get involved in nature and the  environment .

Adriano wants islanders to taste argentine flavors as well: take   mate ,  alfajores  and  dulce de leche   . And, above all, eager to break down barriers, forge ties and leave behind a sad story: Adriano wants to take pictures of the beautiful landscapes of Falkvinas to show the world that it is much more than a  war .
