Celebrating 100 Years of Romania - 1st of December 2018
Greetings from an AISB newbie, mother, spouse, avid traveler, yogi and wellness enthusiast. My family and I arrived in Bucharest just over one year ago from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, as a family of three.
The story begins in the city that used to be known as the Little Paris of Eastern Europe - Bucharest, Romania – one of the most attractive Eastern European
destinations prior to the Second World War.
A native of Romania, Andrei currently resides in the dynamic and energetic city of Cluj where he is contributing to the development of the city and creating new places for the community to enjoy.
We live in the best period of humankind and we can only be grateful and cherish what we have if we acknowledge and celebrate relationships such as the one between Romania and AISB.
I think it’s in my blood. I have never been doubtful or scared of moving to a different place (five so far) and I have always made it my home.

A SUCCESS STORY OF ONE OF OUR VERY OWN!
“It is important to be interested in what you would like to succeed in. You must be interested in the road that leads you to your goal.”
I’m not sure if the word career might be the right way to look at it. For me that sounds very strict and linear while I think the society we live in is fluid and constantly changing.

A bit of law
Spending time with people who are different from you is such a valuable experience.
I am happy to say that I consider myself an alumnus of the American International School. I sometimes think back to 1968 when I attended as a 7-year old.
My father (who one year had taken over 220 flights) always told me that traveling extensively and staying in 5-star hotels while being treated like royalty by local hosts wasn’t what it seemed to be.

I hope your lives are full of grace, generosity and compassion and I hope the world treats you similarly. If not, get out of there and change your situation.

I am in Bucharest but I travel a lot throughout the Balkans to keep up with our clients and explore potential new clients.
I would like to tell all AISB students to become sponges and soak as much as they can from the surroundings they are in as that will be the most important pillar in their lives for the future.
To those who I was fortunate to work with, you have made my life a fulfilled series of adventures and learning experiences for which I am thankful.
