Meet Sebastien Saitta, Naples resident
Work: Marketing director at Blue Zones Project Southwest Florida
Proudest achievement: Having a positive impact on community well-being through the Blue Zones Project, especially at a time when it is needed most.
Expectations for the future: Continuing to find ways to support the health and well-being of individuals in whatever context that may be.
Favorite Websites: BlueZones.com and BZPSouthwestFlorida.ShareCare.com. The second website gives me my real age. It is a regular reminder that age is just a number and can be influenced by my health and habits.
Local or global causes supported: I am part of the 250 Men & More Campaign at The Shelter for Abused Women & Children and helped start the Purple Jacket Foundation that directly supported the organization through fundraising events.
Favorite thing about Natural Awakenings: Finding practical nutrition and well-being advice in a simple and easy-to-follow format.
Most frequented healthy food restaurant: I try and visit as many of the Blue Zones Project-approved restaurants to support the actions that they have taken to make healthy choices easier for customers.
How I support my community: I am fortunate to have a job that directly supports the well-being of more than 730 organizations and thousands of individuals in Southwest Florida.
Favorite inspirational quote: “…If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
What you are doing to be the change you want to see in the world: Be kind. Be humble. Smile.
