In every city where GROW takes place, we have a local team that implements the project, led by a coordinator (OCP). To get into the GROW atmosphere, let’s meet the enthusiastic local coordinators! Today we present you Konrad.
My name is Konrad, I am a 2nd year student at Computer Engineering in University of Pitesti and I am member in AIESEC Pitesti since April 2013.
Sport is my passion, I did sport since I was 10 years old and I think it helps you a lot to discover your limits. I also like movies, I started watching them long time ago, and they helped me to learn English very well and to discover more of this world. Another passion would be video games, I always enjoyed them and they made me a creative person and now I want to become one of the people who make the games.
My first contact with GROW was last summer, when I was in AIESEC and I helped the Summer GROW team to promote the project among teenagers. I found out it is a great project and when the internationals came here in Pitesti it was a “WOW” for me, it was the first time when I talked to a student from another country.
Last summer, when the foreign students came here, I found out it is a great project, so I wanted to be in the organisation team. In Spring 2014 I was part of the team as OC COMM&Logistics. After this experience I found out I want more, so I decided to become the Leader of the project in one of the cities and because I like challenges I took Valcea, which is a new city for me.
My motivation for being an OCP? First of all, being the leader of a national project makes me more motivated to bring an impact among teenagers from our city, and this makes the second reason that motivates me, having the chance to make teenagers learn something that would help them in their future and to offer them the opportunity to do something new, something they don’t learn in high school.
My message for the GROW participants:
I wish to make the best project that was ever made in Valcea, so dear participants if you wanna make something with your lives, if you want to have some fun and want to meet new awesome people, don’t hesitate, challenge you to GROW!
My message for the GROW trainers:
I wish to meet you sooner and to offer you a great experience here in Romania, to introduce you to our culture and to show you how we live!
