In 2020, I received the title of Honorary Citizen of Suceava City, my most important distinction so far. At the time, I was the youngest person to receive this title in our city.
In 2021, I obtained a historical decision in court against the State: the first decision in favor of stray dogs.
That year, I also built a fountain in Africa (it all started from a high school dream of mine), a project through which I convinced several businessmen to get involved. In September 2022, we managed to build 160 fountains, a Romanian record in Africa.
Perhaps the thing I feel most proud of and attached to, which made me experience the most intense feelings, was the time I hosted 5000 Ukrainians and 1000 dogs and cats at Mandachi Hotel & Spa. I’ve experienced deep emotions and a unique meaning of life.
Helping has become a lifestyle for me. In February-April 2022, I turned Mandachi Hotel into one of the largest private wartime refugee camps. Together with 200 volunteers and my hotel team, we provided free transport to more than 20,000 refugees, hosted for free, for at least one night, more than 5,000 refugees (meal, accommodation, shower, transport), and 1,000 dogs and cats.
Another action I feel proud of: I’ve sterilized more than 4000 dogs for free and I’ve found adoptive families for more than 300 stray dogs.
I define myself through my philanthropic actions (I’ve made donations totaling millions of euros). Doing this gives me meaning and fills my heart and soul with light and peace. That’s why I do it.
I own 7 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 pigs. I live in my native village, Sfântu Ilie.
I love the mountains. I’ve climbed Kilimanjaro and Moldoveanu peaks. I love Bucovina. I love my friends. I admire intelligent people and try to surround myself with smart people. I am loyal to all my employees, and I try to be as honest as I can with everyone around me.
