#KnowYourColleague – with this series of articles we highlight our colleagues’ hobbies and their stories. We aim to create a safe space where everyone is welcome to bond and share their adventures as we grow as a community.
Our colleague Cristina Baltag works as a Software Product Owner in the IT Department which is the first position of its kind in our company.
Cristina has always believed that the world is full of many interesting things so she has never stood still. As well as her role as a Product Owner, she is also a student and is currently doing a Master’s degree in chemical engineering.
Over the years, Cristina has come to love many activities such as writing, drawing, volunteering, running, trying different sports, organizing events, and traveling. During her time volunteering, she organized movie projections, art exhibitions, and literary groups among others.
Cristina devised a project that won a grant – “Toți Între Coperte” – which is a mystery quest game involving books being hidden all over the city. Players had to find the books by analyzing the instructions attached to them which contained a clue about the location of the next book. Whoever found the first book passed this to another person after reading the instructions.
After having discovered so many new things, Cristina now loves the world even more. Right now, she is working on a cream formula as part of her Master’s degree so, let’s keep our fingers crossed for her!
