„In High School” / „În Liceu” (2016)

ENG:

This is a book for everyone. Without exception. Here, no one will judge you. Here, we are all equal. Because you will see the diversity in the answers, which, to be honest, surprised me too. You will read different stories from different young people.

RO:

Asta e o carte pentru toată lumea. Nu există excepții. Aici nu te va judeca nimeni. Aici suntem toți egali. Pentru că vei vedea diversitatea din răspunsuri, care, să fiu sinceră, m-au surprins inclus pe mine. Vei citi povești diferite de la tineri diferiți.

„In High School in China” (2017)

  • a compilation of interviews with high school students from 100 countries, attending international school UWC Changshu China. Interviews on their culture, adjusting to independence at an early age, celebrating differences and hopes for the future.

ENG:

The diversity gravitating around us is unbelievable. Still, if you ask me what the differences between us are, I wouldn’t look at race, religion, ethnicity, country of origin or other such aspects first. There are many things underlying our true selves.This leads me to the purpose of this book that you are holding in your very own hands. It sounds crazy, right? Over 400 teenagers from almost 100 countries coming together in China to study for 2 or 3 years. By reading this book you will get a glimpse of our life on campus, our impressions on the new life we have, a hint of our backgrounds and a picture of who we really are.
