These days, I take an English class, I volunteer. I plan to better my English language skills and, maybe, continue my academic studies abroad. I will continue to be an active volunteer for NGOs in my field – the protection of the environment.
I always think fondly of the Blue Heron family. I like to call it a big family because over the past three years (2006-2009) while I was a grantee of the foundation, I met generous and gifted people. ∞
Being an orphan and lacking material resources, I didn’t dare imagine studying in a well-known university in Iasi. As a Blue Heron scholarship recipient, I had the privilege to improve my life both at the professional and personal level. ∞
I want to start by thanking all the Blue Heron contributors, as well as Prof. Lidia Starica who first introduced me to the Blue Heron program. In addition, I want to thank my mentor, Mrs. Corina Musteret, who came to have a very special place in my life and in my heart. ∞
I feel honored to be invited to share with you some thoughts about myself and the way the Blue Heron Foundation changed my life. My childhood was deprived of the warmth of a loving family. ∞
