I'm not even sure how to start this
Maybe I should start with my name – actually greetings first !
Dear Steemers,Find me on Twitter @meezwhite
Here's the proof it's me :)
I'm Joseph or originally in Romanian called Iosif – taken from the Bible obviously, that's what my parents decided to name me. They didn't give me a second name, which I don't really miss. Anyhow, I currently live in Vienna, Austria, the country that apparently accepted most refugees up to this date. I moved here when I was about ten years old – we were on vacation, and since the school in Romania starts one month later, our mother sent us one month – as preparation – here to school.
My brother and I liked it very much. For me the air smelled differently, good differently and I liked the many public gardens near my grandmother's place. And so our parents asked us, whether we wanted to stay in Austria or go back to Romania. Although I was a child, I knew deeply inside, that this wouldn't be a light change. Inside myself I was reserved at first, thinking for the first time in my life what a change like this could mean, thinking about the family in Romania and all my friends and colleagues and the places I conquered in the settlement where we used to live (I might write a story about those times).
Yet it sounded so appealing to get to know all these new friends and smell everyday, the scent of a fresh start. I'm not sure what my brother was thinking or feeling in that moment, I haven't asked him yet, anyhow we both decided with our children's mind – and accepted "the offer".
It was very courageous of our parents, to give up everything for their two boys, just so that they can have a better future. Thirteen years later and here we are – me enjoying a beautiful Sunday and my brother on vacation – in Romania. I do feel very thankful towards my parents for making this decision. It's funny that, they asked for our opinion at such a young age, concerning a life–changing decision.
I'm currently studying Digital Media Technology, working as a research assistant the university's research institute, investing my time in my and my friend's company, creating amazing web and mobile apps and working on a traveling startup–app, which I will hopefully have the opportunity to present to you and ask for your personal feedback in the next few months.
What lies ahead
I'm looking forward to finishing a bunch of work, which I'm currently involved in which is quite time consuming. Nevertheless I'm glad I stumbled on Steemit. I'm not really the biggest fan of Facebook. I'm also not the biggest fan of social networks selling my data like it's something to sell by them. I'm also not a fan of the current economy. Plus I've always wanted to try out a cryptocurrency, but they've all seemed soo complicated. I'm looking forward to writing more and bettering my broken English and also I would like to hear from you – people who care and I would like to care for too.
I'm looking forward to being a part of a better community, not necessarily craving money, but a craving change for the better.
