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

My last adventure…

Posted on January 19, 2017

The last thing that fits my definition of adventure was my volunteering project through AIESEC in Egypt. Uncertainty. That’s the word that best describes what an adventure means to me. And the exchange was all about that. Actually it was the first time I left Romania. Back then, I had a strange desire to have a break from my normal life, and live another one for a while. And I wanted something that would blow my mind. And it wasRead More

If I had a billion dollars…

Posted on January 16, 2017

If I had a billion dollars I would definitely spend it on travelling. In this way I could make the most of the money. I don’t have a certain country that I would want to visit first. I would like to get places like Mexico, Thailand, India, Egypt, Dubai, The Dominican Republic and all these kinds of exotic destinations. I would prefer this kind of destinations because I love the sea, the hot weather and sunsets at the sea. IRead More

What do I define as a family

Posted on January 11, 2017

In order to describe what I define as a family I want to first tell you a little about my own family. I grew up in a big one. In the beginning it was just the five of us, my little sister, me, my brother and my parents but as I grew older different kind of people would come and join our family. This might sound strange to you so let me explain what I mean by this. My parentsRead More

What is home…

Posted on January 10, 2017

Mom: Stop saying Cluj is your home, it’s not. It really hurts me when you do that. I fell like you forgot us and your roots. Me: Mom if “home” had been a building or a place they wouldn’t have invented the word “house” to begin with. Home is a state of mind, a feeling, the universe that shelters you in a very specific moment. As I was growing up I could not imagine a place better than the oneRead More

A perfect day for me…

Posted on January 9, 2017

A perfect day for me would be a day surrounded by my closest friends and family and being actively involved in a social project or one that brings me knowledge and information about my interests. I would definitely love to share what I did or learned with my friends and family at the end of the day when we meet and also listen to their stories of the day. I like being around the loved ones and change opinions orRead More

My biggest accomplishment in life is…

Posted on January 6, 2017

  My biggest accomplishment in life is the fact that I always do the things I like, the things I love. I had a passion for street art so I have decided to write my bachelor thesis on this subject and the result really made me happy. My second accomplishment is the President position in AIESEC. I strongly believe this in my biggest accomplishment because I still get to do what I love the most: get connected with people fromRead More

I’ve worked as a saleswoman for…

Posted on January 3, 2017

I’ve worked as a saleswoman for twenty five years. When I was younger I wanted to be a dancer. My grandmother even gifted me a pair of pink ballet slippers. But my parents said that, by practicing this job, I wouldn’t be able to feed myself and my future family. As you can see, I sell a little bit of everything: biscuits, cans, flour, sugar. People ask me how I endure this cold weather. It’s all about money, I tell them. AndRead More

I feel like art is an extension of myself…

Posted on January 2, 2017

I feel like art is an extension of myself. I can’t go days without drawing something digitally or not having my sketchbook with me. It’s the only thing that has remained with me since childhood. Like you know how we would draw our favorite cartoon characters? That’s how it started for me. And then I started drawing the outside world. For a while I thought it was just a passing passion, not something that I would seriously pursue as anRead More
