JuKaVa
At JuKaVa we are building programs for children and parents based on:

logo-patratos-mic1. Learning through play. Our passion for children development and our experience in psychology empower us to create contexts in which engaging activities absorb children and allow them to develop through play important abilities for a balanced and happy life. From concentration, problem solving, motor skills and inventiveness, to communication, collaboration, empathy, courage, confidence, openness.

2. Healthy adults. Through our experience in psychology and personal development, we offer children healthy models of relating, allowing them to develop their communication abilities, empathy, understanding, listening and relating.

That’s why we believe that learning can happen in any situation with the right approach and abilities. So what we do is to “hide” the principles above inside our carefully crafted programs: parties, workshops, camps, seasonal schools, weekends out and parenting counseling.

JuKaVa was founded in 2012 with zero money and developed as a lean start-up. Our are proud that our impact story is about more than 250 children and parents who benefited from our programs and thus made a step forward towards more meaningful and conscious relationships. Check out more about JuKaVa!

Writing sneaked into my life through my parents (both published authors of prose and poetry) and as an effect of my own curiosity and attraction towards this field. I had my first attempts in middle school and high school, when my Romanian teacher Daniel Tache charmed me with his different approach on literature, based on semiotics.

Then, I enrolled at the Faculty of Journalism and Communication Studies (University of Bucharest) and from the very first year I joined “The Bullet”, a Bucharest-based newspaper printed for scholars. It was made by a team of students lead and coached by experience American journalist and author Alan Elsner, and prof. George Popescu, from the faculty.

Then I got hired: HR and leadership monthly magazine Cariere, business weekly Money Express and local monthly version of Esquire.

Poetry
I love poetry because it’s the most beautiful way to say things that are almost impossible to be said. As Edgar Allan Poe put it, poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. It is the ineffable taking shape. It is freedom. Play. Openness. And you can read mine here: http://micileversuri.blogspot.ro/
