Staying active in the school community is something that Anticoi values and believes in. He enjoys learning and taking classes to further his practice of teaching.


Antico loves to travel and visits different places around the world. Living in Europe will give him the opportunity to explore Europe in greater detail and travel to many different places he never would if coming only for vacation. Since he is an American, and from Pittsburgh, American football is a big part of his life. Antico is a huge Steelers fan and enjoy watching and celebrating his usually victorious team from Pittsburgh. He enjoys being outside, walking around different parts of the area, biking, and playing soccer. He is excited to join the Open Gate community and is eager to explore life in Europe.
