I was born and raised in Moldova, at a time when it was still part of the Soviet Union. Today's Moldova is still to find its true identity. Based in Moldova until 2008, I worked as a journalist and later as a press officer for the national parliament. An Open Society scholarship has brought me to Maastricht (the Netherlands) where I have completed a MA “Analysing Europe”, and currently work at the European Journalism Centre. My thoughts travel daily to Moldova.
