How long have you lived in Șiria?
This is my home. My family have lived in Șiria for as long as I can remember.
Have you ever been out of the country?
I have been out of the country. I went because I heard people say that it was easy to get a job and to earn money. But it was not easy to find work and it was hard to be away from my family.
I won’t go again whilst ever I can find work in Romania.
What are your thoughts about DECE?
I love DECE. I have watched it grow and seen more and more of my neighbours begin to work there and I have seen how much they enjoy what they do. I’ve also watched as they have begun to make improvements to their homes and so I was really glad to get this apprenticeship.
What are your dreams for the future?
I hope that I can finish my apprenticeship well. I want to be able to improve my home and to provide for my family and not have to worry about providing simple things like medicines and firewood.
