His name is Alex, 22 years old and he’s locco. Free spirited, competitive and with a big love for challenges. Sometimes he may seem to be chaotic but actually is organized. Almost done with college, he wants to help the student community and he dreams to change the world someday.

This is why she is sure that, by bringing ideas and individuals together, TEDxEroilor is able to have a great positive impact on the people of Cluj. Monica joined TEDxEroilor as a result of her love for the TEDtalks which she enjoys almost daily next to her coffee – more like “coffees”.

Javier Rocha Robles

Superpower: Omnilingualism


Javier is a wanderlust victim and this has taught him that “life is all in the experience of learning”. Traveling and working around the world has molded him into the enthusiastic and positive person he is today. One of his biggest passions in life, as well as one of his greatest accomplishments, is being able to set goals and reach them. He is confident about the future and making the most out of it. He likes to step back and admire the place he has reached, living by the motto “one way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure”.

Adriana Beștea

Superpower: Being human


Once upon a time, there was a girl who wanted to create and tell stories. As she began telling them, more and more people listened and she started discovering the complexity of being the hero of the story. She learned that not all heroes wear a cape, but that each one of them needs others’ support in completing their tasks. So our storyteller grew up and became a Creative Director, Communication Manager, Public Speaker, Writer, World Traveler. This way, her story could inspire the up and coming heroes of the world, by emphasizing the importance of human connection. At the same time, Adriana’s also pursuing her personal adventures, still learning how to be the best hero of her own life.
