I am passionate about

Actions

Since 2010, I’ve been engaged in different youth movements, and I was able to secure funding for my social development projects. I led a team of 13 students to victory for developing a network of high school students connected to e-learning platforms for educational development. By the time I graduated high school in 2012, I managed to connect 3 high schools to wi-fi networks that made the open data available for every student in every classroom. More than 700 students benefited directly, and more than 1300 people impacted. When I was a freshmen in college, I had more that 23 recognitions for social impact from local and national organisations (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WcgC4Bo538). Thanks to social recognitions, I received the Resolution Project Fellowship and I was motivated to engage and to scale the impact. One of my successfully implemented projects that made an international impact is DigiKidz. DigiKidz is an ICT project designed to implement a sustainable model of IT Education and Computer Literacy for high school students. It focuses mainly on students who come from underprivileged families or orphanages in the Republic of Moldova. Till today, the project raised more than 5,000 $ in funding and 2,000 $ as pro bono services, obtained national media coverage and was featured in HuffingtonPost, 20 students became certified as digital ambassadors and received scholarships, and partnered with 2 local IT companies for career development. Recently, DigiKidz project became one among many other CGIU commitments at the Clinton Global Initiative University 2017.
