Welcome to Episode six of The Moldovan Coffee Break. A Europa United and European Network production.
In this six-part podcast series, we will be casting a spotlight on the country of Moldova and in particular, life for six young people so as to examine what it is like to grow up in the Moldova of 2021.
Moldova has historically been given a bad rap, mainly due to uninformed press and unflattering travel reports, but there is far more to this country than just a post-Soviet state, and we will show this by engaging with Moldova’s strongest asset – its youth. Co-hosted by Ken Sweeney and Loredana Prijmireanu, their aim is to portray Moldova for what it really is – a culture rich country with a unique past and vibrant future.
Loredana has been sitting down for a coffee with the six young individuals over the last few months and each episode will feature a conversation with one of our interviewees.
In episode six, Loredana talks to Cristina Carmanu. Cristina is a student who has spent time working in the Moldovan media with local publication, Ziarul de Garda.
