Romania

Law School graduate with an International and Community Law master degree, worked for 20 years in creating public policies, national strategies and inclusive programs for vulnerable categories in Romania, inclusion of Romanian citizens of Roma ethnicity and women and children victims of gender-based violence. Her motivation is the memory of her grandmother, who was born without the right to vote. She believes that history should never be forgotten. In a world filled with hate speech and misconceptions, our true power comes from accepting diversity in our lives and allowing ourselves the gift to understand the reality. She likes to say, “Think how monotone life would be if we all would be the same.” Her vision of the world is equality and equity for everybody.
