– to promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all;

This edition of Coffee and Stories is about choosing unconventional career paths, the road to self-discovery, finding and following one’s vocation. We are hearing the stories of two authors – a recipient of a Academy of American Poets prize, and a Romanian law graduate who lived in and wrote about the Japanese culture.

Mirona Bengescu – After graduating Law School and EU Law College in Bucharest, Mirona Bengescu set out, in 2008, to study international relations in Japan as a Japanese Government fellow.

While in Japan, she completed a 1-year Kobe University program, studied Japanese, worked as an English teacher for a preschool, met and befriended people from all over the world and traveled during most of her free time.

It was an intense time and, after coming back home, she started a blog documenting the adventure,
Japonia departe aproape. She bagan to work as a junior counsel in the pharma sector, then moved on to FMCG. She took another year off from her corporate career to start a business and co-author a book of short stories on Japan experiences, “Scrisori din Cipangu”.Today, she’s a Senior Counsel and an ever struggling entrepreneur. But, most importantly, a happy wife, mom of 2 young boys and a dreamer, still.

Tara Skurtu is an American poet, creative writing mentor, and international public speaker based in Bucharest. A two-time U.S. Fulbright grantee and recipient of two Academy of American Poets prizes and a Robert Pinsky Global Fellowship in Poetry, her poems are published internationally and translated into six languages. Tara is the author of the chapbook Skurtu, Romania and the full poetry collection The Amoeba Game.

Before moving to Romania, Tara taught at Boston University; she was a lecturer in creative writing, taught composition to incarcerated students through BU’s Prison Education Program, and was on the planning and teaching team for Robert Pinsky’s inaugural Massive Open Online Course, “The Art of Poetry.” At present, she teaches group and individual creativity seminars and writing workshops.
