My name is Noemi and I’m from the stunning Transylvania region of Romania.
After I graduated college and obtained my Master degree in Mental Health, I imagined my career working with mentally ill patients. I applied for a job in a special mental health hospital, but I didn’t get the job. This let-down made me reconsider my future and I decided to fulfil my dream of volunteering in Africa. I found DRH Norway and through them as a Development Instructor (DI) I went to Mozambique to work in a Child Aid project. I was closely working together with the community, mostly with children and women. Those six months was the most beautiful six months of my life, a life changing experience.
As my volunteering was closer to an end the least I could imagine my life back in Europe. Therefore I decided to return to Mozambique and continue working in development aid projects. For 3 years I was working in a Teacher Training College in Mozambique, educating adults to take development in their hands by becoming the teachers of the future generations.
Right now I’m the GAIA Course team leader at CICD. The Gaia Course has a challenging programme, where it is necessary to be productive and go for reaching the targets in the different tasks to earn your scholarship and to continue in one of our DI or Climate Activist teams here in CICD.
I believe I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things. Come join us, to have your lifetime experience!
