Hi everyone! First of all let me say I’m very sorry for my absence, but I’ve been caught up between school starting and volunteering and other great, educational events. And I want to tell you about one of these! It is called “Seara de carte”, in Romanian, or in English, “The book evening”. I had the chance to get kind of close to the organizer of this event and so, I interviewed her about this project and many other aspects. (She is actually the one I choose for my...

This week, dedicated to NCD (Non Communicable Diseases), every young man/woman should take a moment and think about his/her life, what he/she might be doing wrong and what he/she could improve. Again, I am speaking about your own life. We all know empathy, productive relationships and helping others are beautiful emotions or actions for every man/woman to feel or do. And they are very much interconnected with our own and inner life: our mind and our body. Beautiful social and “...

Today is Earth Overshoot Day in 2014. This means that humanity has consumed in almost 8 months what the earth could produce in 1 year. So it would be necessary for us to have an-Earth-and-a -half to sustain the 7 billion-population of our planet. Or, to be more clear, our Earth needs 1 year and 4 months to renew the resources we used in 1 year. As you may expect, this day has occurred sooner and sooner each year. If in 1990 it was December, 24 years later it is August. Imag...

I want to talk to you today about taking action and making changes. We all know most of the problems we are confronted with, but we never do anything about it. Why? Maybe because we weren’t taught how to make changes and so we can’t see where they can take place or/and what we actually can do. This way, we end up frustrated and disappointed with humanity, not even imagining what we can do to heal the wounds it created. But lately I found a possible solution to this issue,...

In this world full of issues, darkness, unknown and fearful future, we tend to forget that we should be proud. We should be proud just for who we are, where we live, and the amazing people we have around! Even if we don’t have money, even if we feel hopeless, even if we feel alone, there’s always a place where each can find joy and peace with himself. And today, I want to tell you about what my country gives me to put in that place of mine. Well, of course, it literally giv...

Today, as I promised a while ago, I decided to write to you on the educational system in my country, Romania. This article is going to be mostly informative, but I will also try to observe some weak or/and positive points. I hope you will find it interesting and that it will help you have an insight on an educational system, similar or not to the one in your country. Firstly, you should know that education in Romania is based on a tuition-free system. There are 11 mandatory years...

This week I’ve been thinking about the youth in Romania and about its passions and interests. And slowly, I began to observe that these have started to estrange from culture, knowledge, true love or a lot other things that the human being is to be admired for. Let me explain this phenomenon. It starts with television, internet, newspapers and maybe others too. There you can see, by taking just a glance, examples of how to succeed in life without making an effort. Just an exampl...


Today I’ve chosen to write to you about technology, as it has been around us for some time already and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to fade away, even the contrary: continuous development is taking place. I would like to talk to you about the Internet of Things (IoT). It sounds like a network, most like the internet but with some extra features. Well, IoT is here and it is gaining its place in our lives, or in the lives of some of us. IoT is, indeed, more complex than...

That’s a very difficult question as there are so many problems that I would like to solve. At first, I thought of what discourages me most in my life and of what injustice I see. And I saw the old people around that are just disrespected and who aren’t treated fairly. It makes my heart beat fast and the feeling that I can’t take all the pain off their faces makes me grit my teeth. Then what came in my mind were the wars and violence that had been staying with us for the entir...
