My name is Laura Boglárka Bóka and I am Hungarian. I have studied communication and media studies and sociology at the University of Pécs. I live in Cluj-Napoca for two years where I am doing my master studies in sociology at the Babes-Bolyai University. I work as a volunteer in the Hungarian Cultural Society of Transylvania Youth Organisation.
The best way to give a brief understanding of who I really am has to be through the activities I do on a daily basis. So, to start of, hi, I'm Nathan Galea a student from Malta and I believe myself to be a techie, bookworm and an enthusiast to basically anything that can be translated into art, in other words, photography, programming, music - more specifically the piano, as I often play it - and anything the entertainment industry has to offer, which translates to films and tv series. In addition to all of that, I also have quite an avid interest in esports.
My name is Immy Micallef, a student from Malta. I am currently following a Diploma in IT at MCAST. The experience at Cluj was one from which I gained a lot of experience. I usually am shy when I come to speak for an audience but this project helped me gain confidence. It is impressive how I learned to see things from an elderly person’s perspective. This will obviously help me in the future.
I am Aleandro Sultana studying Advance Diploma in Computer Systems and Networks. Since i was the youngest participating, at the age of 18 I can say that I have learned a lot. Before participating my character and personality were not ideal for me and others, I felt shy and lack of confidence. With the help of the training done in Cluj-Napoca I managed the overcome those boundaries. I also learned how to understand different perspectives especially when it comes to elderly people.
I’m a 23 years old Transylvanian girl, who are working and learning at the same time in Cluj-Napoca. I’m studying public relations and advertising on master degree. In my free time I do volunteer jobs, teaching elderly people and organizing cultural events.
