I really favourites songs "Safe and Sound". It is soft melody. Besides singing, she is also an actor. She has act in the movie "Valentine's day". I don't know her more but I really like her.

Section 5 - Your turn

Indeed many from celebrities do work for charity to raise their publicity, but the charity scope is to have enough funds to help poor/sick people. Because the celebrities are famous and known, they will bring large funds. In this case, I think it is a good idea that a celebrity do work for charity.

Section 4 - Our Person in...

Hello, I am Mihaela Grigore and I am in Iassy(Iasi)

This city is recognized as the capital of Moldova region. This city, built on an ancient city, is an historical city. Alexandru Ioan Cuza studied here in Iassy, and one of his teacher was the famous poet, diplomat, politician Vasile Alecsandri. A.I. Cuza made the possibility of the union of the following principalities: Moldova and Tara Romaneasca. This was called the "Small Union".
I our days, in his honour, an important university from our country has its name, and of course it is located in Iassy.
Iassy it is also a beautiful city, which it is also called the "Rome", because it is surrounded by 7 hills.

I would like to meet, maybe, the best mathematical in the history, Gauss. He made a lot of advances in a lot of fields in math, like linear algebra and calculus.


I am Mihaela Grigore and I am from Romania.
Now, thinking on the answer for this question "Is there a famous film actress/celebrity that you’d like to meet?", I have realized that I couldn't decide which celebrity I want to meet, because I do not know what kind of topics I'll open. I think the only and obvious thing which I'll do is to take a picture with that celebrity.
