GROW Summer 2016 takes place in 10 Romanian cities, where the magic is delivered by a happy organizing team, headed by a Local Project Manager (LPM). Today we present you Ema, the GROWzav LPM from Craiova!

Hello everyone! I’m Ema from Craiova! The first thing you can observe at my person is my smile. I am very positive, creative and ambitious. Organized, full of energy and talkative are other 3 words that describe me very well. Altruism is another quality of mine, together with kindness and generosity. I always help, share whatever I have and even if I am still a pupil, I like to consider myself pretty responsible and mature for my age. 

My biggest passion is the humanity, for instance people around me. I love spending time teaching people, learning from them, listening to them. I adore being among crowds of people who want to develop themselves and also change something in this world. My other passions are: traveling, acting, dancing, talking, volunteering, public speaking, working with youngsters. 

Poza Ema

I had been hearing about GROW since I was in my secondary school as my friends were taking part at it. My first contact with GROW was 2 years ago, when I was in the 9th grade and it was one of the best decisions of my life. People who were promoting it in my school made the connection and from that on we are “inseparable”.

Seeing people growing, developing and giving them the chance to gain some useful life skills is my kind of miracle. I love working for and with people, especially for the ones in my community. I do believe in this project as becoming a youth movement. Those participants’ smiles and the confidence in the trainers’ eyes make me go even farther with my dreams. All I do is for my community and people around me, so I always “steal” my energy from people’s vibes.

My message for the GROW participants – students and trainers:
Have the courage to do something for yourself, to face your future, to speak out loud! Come and try the GROW experience and I assure you will shortly become addicted to it. You will see your world through different eyes and of course, you will have the possibility to change some mentalities. “Take a bite” and have fun! 😀
