Alex Cristescu - A once in a century MILESTONE

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.

In previous messages I have underlined how and why our alumni network of global citizens have a moral responsibility to add sustainable value to their communities. 

In a diverse world, only by focusing on an interest-based approach can we collectively achieve this. Our Alumni Association Strategy is focused on just that and the previous Executive Committee (2016-2018) has made amazing progress in this regard. 

Following the June elections we have a new Executive Committee (2018-2020) well equipped to take us further on our path. A great thank you to each and every member of the team for volunteering their time and skills. 

Together with George Mucibabici, Dorothea Achim, Michelle Ciubuc, Ana Teodorescu, Fabiana Papastefani-Pezzoni, Catalina Gardescu, Pia Stanca, Ellie Meuli, I strongly believe we will bring even more value to our current students and parents, alumni and AISB. Our Association is run from Bucharest by the Executive Team but I would like to thank our worldwide delegates, covering all continents, for volunteering in this organization. We consist of over 50 alumni ready to add value to our community. 

This issue of the AISB Alumni WORLD Magazine is one that celebrates a milestone, or rather a relationship. All AISB alumni have called Romania their home at some point in time, and this year Romania is turning 100 years old. This country was born to allow a people their  identity that was forged during hundreds of years of tumultuous history. No matter what the situation, people that called this country home have contributed to the world through their creativity and innovation. 

Our school was founded in 1962, during the now condemned Communist regime, it was an enclave for different nationalities, people and ideas. A few things have changed since then, such as freedom of speech and movement. Today AISB has developed into an institution for all nationalities, people and ideas, with the goal to educate future responsible global citizens to contribute worldwide through their creativity and innovation. 

This past century, tumultuous and horrific, has brought beneficial change to all humans. Take me for example. I am a transylvanian born in the middle of the 1989 Romanian Revolution, who received an international education and is now free to leave you, no matter who or from where you are, with a worldwide published thought to resonate with: 

We are ever so grateful to the many generations of people before us, from all walks of life, that have changed so many things for the better and brought us to where we are today. 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.
