My name is Ionuț Hodoroagă and I am a 19 year old Romanian currently enrolled in the second year of IBEB. I was born in Horezu, a small city from one of Romania's nine regions, Oltenia.

Andreea Barbu - Secretary

Dear All, My name is Andreea Barbu and I am a proud Eastern European from Romania. Currently, I am enrolled in my second IBEB year and I am quite the traveler in any possible way. Besides my Bachelor, I am representing EESA’s spirit from the Secretary position. You may ask yourself what challenges a Secretary might face. Well…there is no specific answer to this question, since a Secretary needs to be always open minded to bring structure, control and traceability to the team’s ideas. This means that if someone needs an overview of EESA’s activities, they come to the most updated person - me. Additionally, I am chairing this year’s Marketing Committee, which involves being “the eyes, ears and mouth” of the association
