Country: Romania/Chile

My favorite place: Chiloé Island

My favorite book: White nights by Fyodor Dostoyevsk

Three things I dislike: Disloyalty, falsehood and inconsistency.

My greatest adventure: Backpacking in Southern Chile ending with an earthquake.

I think Europe’s biggest challenge is… to treat every country in an equal and respectful manner (EU members or not).

My changemaker idol: Claire Denis, a filmmaker.

My message to the EYA community:
Be real, to the students, do not work just for a grade or credits and to the mentors, keep on being humble and listen to what students have to say, you always can learn something new and you never know by whom.”
