Many times, when I think of my childhood years, I remember all the obstacles I had to overcome in order to accomplish my dream of becoming a football player. There were moments of frustration when I thought my only escape was working harder and harder. Talent wasn’t enough. I needed support and eventually it came.

There were moments of despair which I overcome but which I will never forget.

Every morning I see my children smiling and this fills me with joy. They have a carefree childhood. They are happy.  I keep on telling them that not every child is like them. My desire is that they understand we have to help those in need. This is why I accepted to support the UNICEF cause in Romania.

Children have the right to dream.

My children’s smile is the best gift that God has given me!

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Romania
