My name is Alexandra-Angela Oancea and I am 23 years old. I am a medical student at UMF Cluj-Napoca in the 5th year. The 4th year of my studies I did it in Germany with the Erasmus scholarship and it was an experience that changed my life.
I wrote my first blog post in 2010 and I use writing in order to figure out the meaning of life and what should I do with it and what makes me happy and unhappy, surfing through what it means being a human. Sometimes I’m buried under an existential crisis, sometimes I think trivially about the most important themes of life, but that’s all right.
In 2016 I started in Cluj-Napoca the project “Medici Pentru Tine” addressed to the general population that consists of conferences that give medical correct informations for free to the interested population – because it’s easier to prevent than to cure. Around 1,800 people in total participated in 2016 and 2017 and I hope it made a bit of an impact. The project is still ongoing in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
I believe that healthcare should be the same everywhere and that people should have access to the best treatment possible regardless of the country they come from. Avoiding a preventable disease and being healthy should not take count of the socio-economical, political or cultural status of an individual.
