Mariana Sterea has been working at CENTRAS since 1999. She was part of the ONG National Forum organizing team for the first time in 1996.
Before CENTRAS, she used to work at the Romanian Foundation for Democracy.
“The projects and activities I have attended are already mentioned in the CENTRAS’ reports. But what reports and CVs do not contain is the heart one puts in, the efforts, the hopes and sometimes the disappointment that you couldn’t do more together with your colleagues, beneficiaries and partners.
I am a licensed accountant, social worker and trainer, I am a colleague, a friend, a wife and a mother. For these last, the diploma is given to you by those together with whom you work, struggle, enjoy, suffer or win or by those that are respecting you for what you are and what you do."
