Alex Cristescu - Stories of Rediscovery

AISB is not just a school where teachers and students participate in the process of learning. It's a place where after our own alumni want to come back and dedicate themselves on a continuous basis.

Our community is finally back at school, full-time and with all the safety measures we have grown accustomed to in place. Even events such as the Terry Fox Run seem to be coming back on track. Although reunions will still have to wait for a while, we are confident that the AISB Alumni will return, and their annual presence in supporting school events will be restored and reinterpreted.

Now at AISB we can yet again see that amazing process of new generations being educated to reach their full potential. It is not only teachers and students, also parents and alumni join in the effort to make our community perform even better. There are some  amazing stories in this edition of the WORLD Magazine, inspiring to say the least - stories of re-inventing oneself and stories of rediscovery.

For me personally, there is a story that stands out and strikes at the core of what makes AISB truly great. This is our cover story with  Cosmin Ghiță, whom I have known since high school: an amazing person, a strong character, great friend, hardworking and with an intellect very few people have, and even fewer know how to use. Cosmin joined AISB through the scholarship program, and I remember him as one of the best students in school, fun to spend time with. He then went on to Bates College where he excelled,  moved back to Romania, and is currently the CEO of Nuclearelectrica SA (the Romanian nuclear energy producer, a listed company). Of course, two  sentences cannot do justice to all his achievements, but what is clear is that he is one of the youngest professionals in the nuclear energy sector, recognized worldwide.

I invite you to read his story in this edition of WORLD Magazine and find out more! Today AISB is even stronger, and we are so proud to know that Cosmin, Class of 2008, has joined our Board of Trustees. Thank you, Cosmin, for accepting such a vital position, and thank you to the Board of Trustees for welcoming him! The Board is where AISB’s future strategy is decided and where all necessary resources are assured to make said future possible.

So, why is this important? AISB is not just a school where teachers and students participate in the process of learning, it is a place where after graduation our own want to come back and dedicate themselves on a continuous basis. Having past generations come back and participate is a privilege very few communities have. This is the core of AISB and what makes this place great.

Thank you to all of you who find time to help out our wonderful community!


Alexandru Cristescu, Association President
