I am still institutionalized in a Children’s Home until the end of my university studies. I do not regret growing up in this place. It is, basically, the home of a very big family.

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.

Become a mentor
Each of our mentors becomes a guide, an adviser and a friend for his or her mentee. Mentors communicate with the students on a regular basis, read their reports, teach them how to overcome difficult moments and how to navigate life more wisely.
Our mentors are college graduates who live productive, responsible lives and are often leaders in their community. They donate a minimum of one hour of their time monthly, reading the scholarship recipients’ monthly reports and answering back, guiding and supporting them through their college experience.
If you want to become a mentor and make a difference in a young person’s life, please contact Mihaela Constantinescu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
