GROW Summer 2016 takes place in 10 Romanian cities, where the magic is delivered by a happy organizing team, headed by a Local Project Manager (LPM). Today we present you Horia, the GROWzav LPM from Tirgu-Mures!

My name is Horia Grigoras and I live in Tirgu-Mures, a beautiful multicultural city from Transylvania. I would describe myself as a very positive person, who is looking for challenges all the time, loves nature, adventure, a Big Summer Lover, and who is working really hard to change his local community through education and culture.

I think my number one passions are traveling and going to Music Festivals – I am a huge fan of Music Festivals, so this Summer you can find me at Music Festivals across the country,  I love photography and filmography, I listen to music all the time, I really like to watch TV-Shows when I have some free time, I like to hang out with my friends and I really like to live a healthy life!

My first contact with GROW Project was in the Summer of 2012, when some friend of mine that were participants back them have told me about the project. Starting from that point I wanted to be part of the Organizing Committee of this amazing project, I have started working in organizing GROW Project in December 2012 and I never stopped, because this will be my 8th edition of Organizing GROW.

My motivation for being a Local Project Manager is simple: during the past 3 years working on this project, I have really saw how this project can be a life-changer for the teenagers and how this project can bring a huge impact in the life of a teenagers. So this is my motivation!

My message for the GROW participants – students and trainers: 

Live the moment, live the summer, take as much as you can from the project, and let’s have a summer to remember!
