Declaration of Principles

I practice something I call #whereveryougomakeitbetter: applying my skills and vital force towards the greater good, wherever, however, and any time I can. My friend Shamala —who does tremendous work through Hanai, a startup she founded to connect women everywhere to health services accessible in their geography—calls this amplifyingMay we always. 

Ongoing  Initiatives


Droom Boon

Droom Boon is an NGO I started in 2011 to activate and support sole project initiators.

In other words, I help good people draft, plan, and execute their charity projects with 0% overhead. 

Droom Boon is small, entirely volunteer-operated, and aims to complete at least one project a year. So far, we've: 

  • renovated an orphanage in Cambodia

  • provided vital medicine to pediatric cancer patients in the Republic of Moldova

  • built a library in the only village school in Ataco, El Salvador

  • + other, smaller, projects. 


Darvag / Center Stage

I'm the on-call writer and grant assistant for Darvag and Center Stage, two arts & theater foundations operating in the Bay Area to support and maintain a safe creative space for the Iranian and Assyrian refugee diaspora. 

  • wrote 2 successful grants

  • designed 3 new partnerships, including a long-term engagement with SCSF

  • scoped and created framework for new revenue stream.


#VinereapeViu (talk show host)

#VinereapeViu is a weekly, live, Romanian-language talk show I produce and host single-handedly to raise awareness on polarized items of interest: race, gender, religion, political orientation, sexual orientation, human rights, mental health, women's rights, environment, etc. (original posts on fb, like here; copied playlist here)

Ask a woman (founder)

Ask a woman is an international, closed, group of support for professional women willing to pool resources to support each other's individual projects. 


Member and active collaborator for a variety of interest groups in Romania, the US, and abroad supporting neurodiversity awareness, reproductive rights, LGBTQI+ rights, and Rroma rights. Recurrent projects with Crestem oameni (Md)Asociatia Bunul Samaritean (Ro)and Self Help Hunger Program (Oakland, CA).
