What a book means to me

Posted on January 23, 2017

A book is a place where you can obtain refuge. Every prejudice is erased and your mind starts a new life, a new story. It is not necessary to know anything, just by reading you can learn it all. Opening the first page of a book is like turning the knob of a door which stands between you and the rest of the universe. Wisdom, fantasy, history and life lessons are waiting for you between the pages, to make youRead More

I Study To…

Posted on January 20, 2017

It’s that time of year again. For many of you, exams are just around the corner, and studying is not what you would like to be doing right now. The whole world looks like an anxious place of PDFs and textbooks, where joy consists in what colour your sharpie should be and that trip to the supermarket that means a half-an-hour-long blissful break from revision. So, here are some motivational quotes that students from all around the world have shared with us: Pakistan, Egypt, Brasil, IndonesiaRead More

About Asians in Europe and a trip to Paris

Posted on January 18, 2017

To put it straight, there are a lot of us in most of the European capitals. For real. I even felt a little awkward when I visited Paris during the winter holidays and noticed that I no longer turn heads when I walk down the streets as I usually do in Cluj. Also, I started to differentiate between the Koreans, Chinese and Japanese. And I started just now because I haven’t really met many people of these nationalities neither inRead More

Dina Juzbayeva – The girl with hair like the Sun

Posted on December 20, 2016

I met Dina for the first time two years ago. We have a mutual friend who introduced us to each other. She had her hair dyed in red, just like a flame. Later on in our friendship I found out that the flame in her hair was an extension of her strong personality and eccentric character. I remember the moment when we were taking photos in front of the Matthias Corvinus Monument and I asked her what her favourite placeRead More

The best experience I ever lived was…

Posted on December 7, 2016

The best experience I ever lived was when I won for the first time the gold medal at the National Volleyball Championship in 2009. After one year of intense training, it was the best reward for me and my team mates. I can not describe in words all the feelings I had at that moment, but trust me, it was something amazing . Even though this happened 7 years ago, I still remember every point, every set, every game…every moment.Read More

I want to become a good doctor…

Posted on November 29, 2016

  I want to become a good doctor. I hope I’ll have a chance to do my job, here, in the hospitals of Romania. There’s a lot to be done here. People need help, but so do the doctors and so does the system. I think that if we all work together we can make a change for the better. *WE’D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR STORY AS WELL!
