Hi Florian! Could you please introduce yourself?
Hi. I’m Florian Morio, 30 years old and I’m PSF secretary. I joined PSF team four years ago. I moved to Ile de France in 2020. I play table tennis since the age of 9 at Olivet club.
How have you heard of PSF ?
When I arrived in Ile de France, I wanted to be part of a humanitarian association. After many research, I discovered PSF thanks to social networks. As a ping-pong player since many years, it felt like an evidence.
How long have you been working with PSF?
I’m invested with PSF since february 2021. After a travel in South Africa in 2019 where I discovered humanitarian world through sports, I was motivated by the desire to continue in this environment. During this travel, I realized how privilegied we are in France and that we have to act about it. Then, I contacted Sarah Hanffou in order to let her know my desire to join PSF team and she accepted my help.
What is your role in this association?
In a first place, I was a volunteer in order to help PSF to collect funds. Then, Sarah trusted me and gave me the opportunity to become PSF secretary. Now, I’m part of the executive boards and I’m able to deal with many subjects.
What similar values to you share with PSF?
Like PSF, I’m convinced that sports is a vector of social cohesion and a way to generate real values as solidarity and respect.
Do you have some projects in the future?
PSF is diving into a new dimension thanks to the huge work made by the team. Many projects are in progress. I would love to help the association to act on territories that PSF has not come yet. I’m currently working on a project which aim is to develop table tennis on some overseas territories. Stay tuned.
Do you have a quotation to share with us?
With no hesitation, a quotation from Nelson Mandela « Sports has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in language they understand ».
With this quotation, I invit motivated people to join PSF team. You will never regret this extraordinary human experience!
