World Magazine likes to ask our Alumni Association members to share memories from time to time. Our current, Vice President, George Mucibabici has created a very successful life, both personally and professionally. He not only serves on the AISB Alumni Association, he has been involved in the Movember foundation supporting men’s health research and initiatives for the past 10 years. Locally, he spends time volunteering for Fundatia Inocenti, accompanying AISB kids on their weekly service learning trips to the children's hospital and helping the foundation raise money for supplies.
Mucibabici is the Head of Investment Banking Department at Raiffeisen Bank Romania. His work revolves around providing high-quality advice and professional services to clients as well as custom solutions that fit their particular needs. He enjoys the challenge and dynamic nature of his work, and was kind enough to reflect on his memories of making connections at AISB.
WM: Tell us a memory you have from AISB when you felt particularly connected to the community.
AISB has, and probably always will be, a great environment to learn and to grow up in. The diversity and quality of its student body and teaching staff is quite unbeatable. I believe that the high level of involvement of current or former students, parents, and teachers is evidence of this. Also, it is on this solid foundation that the AISB community is built and continues to function.
Personally, I felt the most connected to and supported by this wonderful community during the intense play rehearsals for HS theater. These would regularly take up a lot of my free time after school as well as some weekends, and it was during these intense periods that I saw many parents come to check in on us and make sure we were all doing ok.
These were people going out of their way and taking time out of their own schedules to drop by the school and bring us food, snacks, water, drinks, etc. and even maybe stay for part of the rehearsals to provide us with a friendly audience. It was at that point that I realized just how lucky we were to be part of this community. It was much later that I realized the impact this must have had on our personal development; what it means to feel supported, to feel that what we were doing, mattered and was relatively important. I think the subconscious effects of these parents' actions helped all of us navigate many rough personal and professional waters later in life.
In closing, having personally been a part of both public and private educational systems, I can confidently say that one of the leading benefits of our school, besides its rigorous curricula, is the AISB community and the strong bond formed amongst all its current and past members.
