José Próspero, and his Impossible Until It’s Done Project, is the big winner of the fourth edition of the Nova SBE x Gap Year Scholarship, which will take him to countries such as South Africa, Mozambique, Kenia, and Nigeria.
The Nova SBE x Gap Year Scholarship grants students the opportunity of traveling the world while making a difference. That's why José Próspero, a Bachelor's in Economics student from Nova School of Business & Economics (Nova SBE), decided to apply to the fourth edition, becoming the big winner.
Inspired by the will to exceed and give visibility to people who want to have a positive impact, José founded the Impossible Until It's Done Project. It intends to put people who are changing the paradigm and showing how it is possible to inspire through stories. José will thus volunteer in Africa – namely in Cape Town (South Africa), Maputo (Mozambique), Nairobi (Kenia), and Lagos (Nigeria) – in organizations that aim to impact hundreds of lives.
When questioned about the importance of being the chosen winner of this scholarship, José stated that "(…) it is with "an experience such as this one, living for a few months in several countries, that I believe I can grow and learn more (…). I can show that great things can be done with only little things."
You can follow José and the inspiring people and projects he comes across by checking Impossible Until It’s Done Project’s Instagram and Youtube accounts, which he updates throughout his travels.
If, much like José Próspero, you are a senior Bachelor’s student and you intend to have a unique experience that promotes your personal and professional growth and, above all else, your individual and collective potential then apply to next year’s edition now.
