I've kick-started my first year of advertising by winning Young European Creative 2016, in ADC Awards while working at Publicis Romania.

I then went on to be selected as one of the 15 high-potential senior creative women at Cannes Lions' See it Be it programme in 2019, was a mentee at LIA 2021 and ranked 7th best creative in the world at One Show 2022.

I've judged: D&AD New Blood, Cannes Lions' See It Be It, Golden Drum Europe, Adweek Experiential.

I joined Publicis Milan working on Heineken, winning a bunch of awards including Grand Prix in several festivals, and the work I did there also contributed in making the agency earn Agency of the year in several festivals too.

I then uprooted my whole life and comfort and got an Artist Visa to work in the US as a Senior Creative at Mojo Supermarket, New York.

Yet, no one knows any of this in my streaming community. I'm one of the top 10 Twitch Streamers in Romania, I play LGBTQIA+ inclusive storylines in The Sims, run a show called Safe Space with a co-host and a psychologist and have fun doing it all.
