“Politics is important to me because I want to get involved. Above all, I want to help young people find their own way in life”, says Barbara Agostino. As a trained educator and teacher, high-quality childcare and a good education for the children are particularly important to the director of 14 childcare facilities.

The first captain of the Luxembourg women’s soccer national team is still passionate about sports. It is for good reason that the passionate tennis player is committed to promoting the movement of children. “Sport and exercise contribute a lot to a child’s physical, emotional and cognitive development. That’s why it’s so important to promote it more”, Barbara Agostino is convinced.
