2 Guys 1 Dream

To make the planet smile again!

We are Alex & Bertho and we got admitted at NYUShanghai Class of 2024. From the beginning, our journey had barriers for us to overcome and we will continue to go through every other challenge we will encounter.
Today, that challenge is to raise more than 80k by the beginning of August.
Watch our short animation and see who we are, how we got here, and what will happen next.
Strength lies in differences,
not in similarities
Be the reason
someone smiles today
Beautiful minds:
connect, inspire, support


We are Alex and Bertho, two highschool students from Bucharest, studying at “Spiru Haret” National College. Our journey started in September 2019 when we decided to begin working towards our dream.

In two months, we studied for our exams [SAT and TOEFL] and managed to get accepted at one of the most prestigious universities in the world, NYU Shanghai. We are the only Romanians admitted to the Class of 2024, but unfortunately, our partial scholarships aren’t enough for us to pay our tuition [over 71k per person].

We have to raise 80.370 $ by the beginning of August in order to go, together, to Shanghai. Until now we received the help of 436 people, totalling 5.801 USD. Be the next one that help us continue our journey, and give us a chance to fulfil our dream!


We strongly believe that uniting our passions, with our innovative and creative thinking, and with the education we can receive at NYU Shanghai, we can create a future we can all look forward too. Share our dream, and help us become an example for everyone who doesn’t believe that they have to stand out and not fit in!
