We are preparing the GROW Winter edition, so it’s time to meet some of the local coordinators, the ones who make magic happen! Today we present you Teo.

I’m a responsible person who simply loves to see things done in the right way. It might sound a little bit dictatorship, but in fact I’m just driven by the passion for all the things I work for. Don’t you dare to think that I’m a workaholic! 😀

TEOI’m also an energetic person and I enjoy participation in everything I do. For me, it is really important to see the people around me happy and with a smile on their faces. This is why, I try to do my best whenever I can help them without thinking twice. Anddddddd… something that you might not thought of – I’m a little bit childish sometimes.

Right now, my greatest passion is GROW. I love what I’m doing so much that I can talk about it all day long. But, besides GROW, I take advantage of almost every spare moment that I have to watch Korean TV series or hang out with my friends.

Now that is winter time, I can’t wait to go to the ice rink and enjoy this wonderful time of the year.

I’ve also discovered during this year that I’m pretty good at copywriting, so I intend in the near future to develop and improve this skill as I much as I can.

My first interaction with this amazing project happened some years ago. I was a highschool student in the 10th grade when I participated at GROW winter edition. I’ve never thought that this program was going to have such a huge impact upon me, because at that time I had no expectations regarding it. But, I have to admit that I had some of the most wonderful moments of my life, full of joy and happiness and useful sessions delivered by awesome internationals from Georgia, Germany and Malaysia, who played a major role in shaping the person I am today.

And my story continues. One year later, I’ve joined the project for the second time and I had the chance to meet students from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Brazil and Mexico. New people, new great memories, new sessions. That was the moment when I realized that I  would love to be one day part of GROW, but from a totally new perspective, having a completely different role.

This decision to take part in the project was made during highschool while seeing the positive impact that GROW was having upon me and the other participants. And not only. I could easily observed the passion of the internationals and the hard work of the members of the organizing committee. It was wonderful to see how many people were involved in order to make the project happen and create for us, the highschool students, the appropriate environment in order to develop at a personal level and improve our skills.

As I am a former participant, I’m really excited to be the organizing committee president (OCP). I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for a year and I know throughout my own experience that GROW can change lives! Also, taking into account the last edition was in summer 2014, I’m fully aware that it’s up to me and my team to deliver a wonderful experience for both the participants and the trainers in 2016. Just thinking at the results and the impact that GROW is having, I know for sure that I’ve made the best decision!

My message for the GROW participants – students and trainers:
