3 things about me

  • I am a final year student at “Dimitrie Cantemir” College in Bucharest, my majors are English and Japanese.
  • I really enjoy cooking, singing, drawing and reading, and have a high interest in psychology.
  • I have boredom and monotony and thats why I always want to engange in new things.

My life beyond the project

In the past 3 years i have been working on EU projects, studying and working with my mom in her cosmetics salon as a make-up artist and hairdresser.

For me Open the World is

For me, Open The World is the opportunity to be the person that I always needed, but who was never there for me. As a child I always had a difficulties understanding things and I was always searching for someone to guide and understand me. But at the same time I did not want to be papered or mislead simply because I was a child.
I want other children to know that they are not alone, especially the ones who do not have the individual affection of their parents. I hope this turns into a wonderful opportunity to start making a difference in this world we are living in. There are too many children that are misunderstood, just because the grown-ups don’t see them as individuals. I believe with all of my heart that there is no such thing as a stupid or evil child, but a wrong way of teaching and understanding him or her.
Thus, i joined this team and going to give it my best, even if it’s not always top notch. Hopefully, this small step we are doing here in our little country will be a bigger step for our future.

3 things about me

  • I love books; their look, smell, feel and how they feed my imagination.
  • I like looking at the good in people, and try to accept everyone for who they are, not for what I want them to be.
  • I love dogs because they taught me so many things without words, such as unconditional love – the purest and the longest lasting kind of love.

I finished at the Academy of Economical studies in Bucharest, and I used to work in Management Consultancy- European projects and innovating software with people from Romania and all over the wolrd. The last job I had was Innovation and Development Manager at a Romanian Accounting Company.
