Mateo PortelliNational OfficerNext-Generation Politics
Mateo Portelli was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to a mother of Salvadoran descent and a father of Greco-Italian descent. Despite his immigrant origins, he’s often referred to as the “Constitution Kid” by his peers. Whether this is due to his almost constant being in possession of a pocket Constitution and Declaration of Independence, or the sheer passion with which he discusses the founding of the American Revolution, Mateo is an American at heart and mind. A youth attorney in his county and a debate and mock trial state champion, Mateo joined Next Generation Politics in 2016. Since becoming a National Officer in July, Mateo has worked tirelessly on critical elements to promote administrative management and social outreach to the betterment of Next Gen Politics.
