Although he has become a gentleman through school, profession, the prestigious institutions where he works, the top events he performs, the organizations and the personalities of the exalted, high circles he accompanies daily, Mihai has never forgotten that the true virtue and the noble characters are formed at countryside, alongside beautiful, simple people but of a deep wisdom and takes proud that the destiny gave him the luck to grow up on the family farm in Andrid, where he continues to return to whenever he has time, alongside with nature, animals, the original spirit of life.

Mihai has made us the joy and honor of joining the Institute’s family and we pride ourselves on being contemporaries of people who, although very young, already provide themselves a well-deserved place in the history of the universal values of the community. Only with such noble characters and only together, through the synergy of efforts, by dedicating to superior values of life and by the firm desire to devote ourselves to the permanent emancipation of the individual and community human condition, we will succeed as humanity, to maintain ourselves on an ever-ascending path to the ever-increasing culminations of progress, fulfillment and permanent celebration of the joy of living.
