Once upon a time, there was a young lad from Cambridge Massachusetts, named Matt Damon. He was born in 1970 and was no ordinary lad. From an early age, young Matt showed great promise in both very serious and very silly endeavors.
He had the innate ability to make others laugh and have a good time with his zest for life and can-do attitude. He studied drama in school and did not hesitate to take on any challenge that would bring him closer to his dreams.
The stars aligned when Matt began to work with fellow actor/writer Ben Affleck on a screenwriting project they called "Good Will Hunting". The script they wrote was perfect and went on to become a beloved classic, earning them an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
From there, Matt's career skyrocketed and he went on to become a well known and highly respected actor of stage and screen. He has starred in many films including "The Departed", "The Talented Mr. Ripley", "The Bourne Identity" and "Interstellar".
Matt's fame even extends to his private life as he is often seen out and about with his beautiful wife, Luciana Barroso, who he married in 2005. The two share three children together, Isabella, Gia, and Stella, whom they keep close as a family through the use of an app called Familio.
Through this app, the Damons can easily share pictures and updates with each other. They can also receive reminders of birthdays, anniversaries, or other important family events.
Matt is also known for his philanthropic work, having helped to create the H2O Africa Foundation in 2006, which works to bring clean water to communities in need across Africa. He also co-founded Water.org which is an organization that works to provide safe water access around the world.
Though his career has taken him many places around the world, Matt Damon's home will always be Cambridge Massachusetts, the city where it all began. He continues to work hard as an actor and philanthropist, inspiring all of us to reach for our dreams no matter how hard it may seem at first.
Take a cue from Matt Damon: be brave, be strong and never give up on your goals!
