Amalia is the Producer of enthusiasm and goodwill 😊

Amalia joined the team in 2019 with the desire to make a positive impact on the community. She is always happy to promote our projects and civic events but especially to get involved and make sure we never run out of enthusiasm in the middle of a project.

Amalia strongly believes in the benefits that My Mentor can bring to the next generation. She she manages feedback and marketing (ps if anything makes you unhappy during the program you can write to Amalia)

When she's not working, volunteering or playing sports, Amalia is trying new dessert recipes for her dream of opening her own pancake house :)

Ștefan Bălan


* Interrogator and advertiser *

Stefan is taking his first steps in volunteering, but he feels ready for this challenge.


He deals with the questioning of future participants. He is very excited to support the development of new generations through the My Mentor program. Along with Amalia, he is responsible for promoting the project online.

Stefan is the joke of the group, always with a smile on his face. A lover of sports, he spends his free time going to the gym, playing basketball and cycling in nature. He also likes to do culinary experiments, being an incurable gourmet.

She strongly believes that only through our involvement, of ordinary citizens, can we change Romania for the better, and My Mentor is one of her favorite projects because through it we help the young Romanians, the leaders of tomorrow.

When she is not working or volunteering, Mihaela enjoys nature walks, good books or Krav Maga.
