Humans of YEN – Alexandru Nicolae Bujicu

admin-ajax-phpMy name is Alex and I am a Vlach from Romania.

Our community is facing several political problems in Romania, about which people from all of Europe have to be informed. YEN is the best answer for that. YEN is also important to me because through YEN, I have the chance to learn more about how other minorities act to preserve their cultural identity. Furthermore having the chance to speak Armâneasthi with friends who are living in other countries – such as Albania, Macedonia and Serbia – is priceless!

I was motivated to pariticpate in the Diversity Festival because I have the chance to meet other minorities from Europe. The more we connect and support each other, the louder and more colourful we are. Only in this way we can get stronger, and fight for the same goal – to be visible and accepted!
