Dana Canciu (ACC)


One of my dreams as a teenager was to become a software developer. A couple of years ago, after having worked in the IT industry for some time and earning my Graduate Degree in Information Security, I started feeling that the dream and goals I set for myself in my teenage years were fulfilled, yet I felt unfulfilled. I felt that there was much more about me in this life than I already knew, many more things to be explored and learned that would give me more meaning. The following years were a journey of self-discovery, of remembering what I truly love, of embracing who I am and who I wanted to be. I rediscovered how much I love children and how much I love listening to people's issues, insights, stories. I realised people came to me to share pieces of them. Vulnerable, authentic pieces of them. That was the moment I decided to honor my natural gifts, that gave me so much joy by bringing the fruits of those gifts into our world each and every day. This happened back in 2014 and after that things fell into place in a magical way. 2015 was a truly crystallizing year for me. That year I became a coach and graduated the Mind Learners Coaching School. I am so grateful I listened that little voice whispering me to take that step. Every coaching session is a wonderful experience, the human connection and feeling of presence are so incredible they do magic. 2015 was also the year I became a member of Create Yourself and took up the position of Vice President. Create Yourself is an NGO whose mission is to aid and support children’s education. Since then, children in the social apartments of Bucharest bring their light into my life and I do my best to do the same for them. I feel this is just the beginning of me embracing my mission: to live beautifully among people, being a joyful life’s proof on Earth.
