WM Editor Ana Costiniu - The Courage to Reinvent Ourselves

If we have learned anything navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, it is that nothing is set in stone, and that new lessons are always - ALWAYS - just around the corner. It feels like these past two years have been a crash course in overcoming the unpredictable for all of us.

Whatever our chosen profession or life-path, it is safe to say that we have all had to handle routine changes, dynamic variables, unexpected challenges and stress-inducing events, and most days, that was just before breakfast!

But how are we emerging from these collectively agitated times? It feels like we have all stood together on a brink and looked at the same rough waters, and this has somehow changed us. Some of us welcome the reassuring firmness of solid ground, and stand waiting for life to re-settle into their everyday routines. There are others who are getting their sea legs ready and cozying up to “the new normal”. And then there’s those who braced for the unexpected and decided to take the plunge and rethink themselves, their business or their journeys

Flip through the pages of this edition of the WORLD magazine to read stirring accounts of AISB Alumni who have taken a chance on these times and decided to reinvent themselves and their lives, and hit the ground running. Moving to a different city to start a new business, reinterpreting a travel agency’s business flow, reflecting on life while in the Navy, running a risk on an innovative product, finding time to re-discover passions or re-claiming freedom in art - the stories in this edition are all heartening instances of AISB Alumni planning for a renewed future while always staying true to their innermost values. Of course, this list would not be complete without our inspiring cover story of an alumnus very close to the heart of AISB: Cosmin Ghita, star scholarship student in the class of 2008, and now CEO of Nuclearelectrica and the newest member of the AISB Board of Trustees! 

In reading these stories, you will find that there are kindred spirits in the AISB community who have come out on this side of the global pandemic and have stood their ground. Perhaps some stories will bring you hope by sharing their journeys of rediscovery and resilience. And last, but certainly not least, it may just be that you’ll find inspiration and courage for that wild thought that you never pushed further than the “what if” stage in your own mind.
