An American’s Perspective: Only in Romania

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Christopher Klimovitz; I am 25 years-old and I am from the United States of America (Baltimore/Philadelphia). For the 2014 autumn semester I am proudly studying International Development at Babeș-Bolyai University, located in the beautiful Transylvanian city of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Moreover, I am currently working on my second Master of Arts degree in International Peace & Conflict Resolution at Arcadia University; in Glenside, Pennsylvania (very near Philadelphia). You may be asking yourself why an American is studying in Romania. Well there is quite a story behind that.

Ever since I was a child, I dreamed of wanting to traverse Eastern Europe and Romania, in particular. I would regularly read books about Romanian history, cultures, and mythology; though coming from a meager background I never really thought I would ever get to travel to Romania. After I graduated with my Bachelor’s in 2011 I decided to study for a Master’s in Public Policy with a special concentration in mental disability healthcare. After completing my first Master’s in 2013, I took on my current Master’s in the arena of International Studies. I wanted the opportunity to learn more about foreign policy and to help people in need.
