“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

Lucian-Florin Grigore

Job summary/responsibilities

As a Student Application Advisor Lucian is the person that handles the applications for different universities that are affiliated with Studyportals. He is counselling students from all over the world and investing time in talking with them about different requirements, programmes and significant matters that any student should be aware of before enrolling to university.

General introduction/background

Coming from a small town made him comprehend that education is the key that cultivates us the most. Lucian studied Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of Bucharest, including the cultures and backgrounds of both United States and Russia. The background in Cultural Studies (American Studies) made him recognize that education is the ingredient that misses around the globe. His studies made him aware of all the gracious mysteries of the world, but at the same time the gaffes the world made. Now, by being part of our Studyportals team, he militates to do something regarding the educational inequality that proliferated across the world. He is a hard-working individual, willing to help others, investing time in growing, and learning something new daily, dedicated and, most importantly, focused on what stimulates his mind. 

 Key challenge

The key challenge for Lucian was realizing that in a team is more than one member and working in a team should mean a complex organism that performs as efficiently as possible rather than one function at a time with minimal impact.

Personal Goal  

Lucian’s personal goal is to treat everyone the same, for him equity and equality are two major factors, and everyone deserves a chance because “the great theme we all share is that of becoming ourselves” (Anne Sexton).
