Vinicius Júnior, the Brazilian sensation who plays for Real Madrid, was awarded the prestigious Socrates Award at the Ballon d’Or ceremony. The recognition was given to him for his tireless efforts in combating racism and his commitment to give education in Brazil.
Vinicius Júnior, known for his electrifying pace and skills on the football field, has demonstrated that he is not just a remarkable athlete but also a passionate person for social change. He has become a human for those waiting to eradicate racism and improve educational opportunities in his homeland.
One of his most notable thing is the “Vini Jr. Institute,” an educational initiative that aims to provide quality education to underprivileged students in Brazil.
