My name is Loredana. My parents had a troubled marriage. When my mother was beaten by my father, she decided to leave him. Being a violent man, my father took revenge. It was February 21, 2007 when my father took my mother into the forest, and my mother was never seen alive again. My father worked as a policeman and avoided arrest. I was raised by my grandmother, named Maria, and my grandfather, who has a prosthetic leg. He has difficulties moving and walking. I have a brother named Dorin, who is from my mother's first marriage. I think because of my traumatic past, I am a very shy person. I struggle to cope with difficulties in my life. I attend dance classes and I dream of becoming a choreographer in the future. I have heard about the CERI Sponsorship Program and I would like to have a sponsor. I think it would help me achieve my goals and will bring a positive change in my life.
