    Georgiana-Cristina Moisa, a human resources specialist in the Civilian Personnel Division, U.S. Army Europe, became the first Romanian national employed by the U.S. forces Jan. 15 in Constanta, Constanta County, Romania.

    “It’s funny because a few weeks before I saw the job ad I was telling a friend it would be perfect for me to work in the Army,” said Moisa. “Two weeks later that same friend showed me an ad on Facebook saying the Army is hiring a human resources specialist. From that moment I knew this was my job, I have to get this job, and I have to take it!”

    Moisa, the youngest of four children, credits her mother for her strive, determination and success.

    “I know how hard she worked to give us the life we had,” Moisa said. “It’s a unique feeling to make my mother proud because she is my mentor. She taught me that if I want something I should go get it no matter what it takes.”

    Moisa began her career in 2006 as a human resources inspector in the private industry while pursuing her degree at the Academy of Economic Studies of Bucharest.

    “As a former supervisory human resources specialist in the private industry, Ms. Cristina Moisa will provide invaluable knowledge and expertise to assist U.S. forces through the Romanian specific processes and procedures,” said Suzanne Torres, the assistant Civilian Personnel Deputy Chief of Staff for United States Army Europe. “She has a very positive attitude and eagerness to accept the numerous hurdles and challenges that we will face.”

    During her 13 years of experience Christina has found that the job has turned into a passion of hers.

    “I look to bring empathy, communication, and an ability to handle challenges,” said Moisa. “I see how important this job is and after interacting with all the teams I realize how great of a partnership this is.”

    “Bringing Ms. Moisa on board was a true partnership between United States European Command, the Civilian Human Resources Agency, USAREUR and the Romanian Ministry of Defense,” Torres said. “We would not have been able to accomplish this feat without all parties involved.”

    Moisa has made history by striving for perfection and doing what she loves. She hopes her achievements will motivate people from all over to fight for their dreams and exceed expectations in life.

    “If you want a job even if they never had someone like you before; apply and do your best,” said Moisa. “Your work ethic defines you. If you want it, go get it and don’t expect it to be easy.”
