About Me

I believe in dreaming big and working hard: bright eyes, brave hearts and a touch of perfectionism drive the world.

As somebody who at the age of 19 launched and headed an educational non-profit organisation which now gathers over 100 students, I'm convinced that limits exist only in our heads. We, humans, are invincible. Over the last two years, I have been travelling the world (I've lived in 4 countries) and passionately advocating for causes close to my heart as part of global non-profit organisations. Things change with the speed of the light, but my passion for writing has stood the test of time. 

Writing has been my passion since early childhood. I published my first article in a local newspaper at the age of 13. Words are powerful. Words are impactful. One of my articles was shared over 16000 times and was translated into 10 languages. The scope of my interests ranges from international trade to stoicism and the study of emotional intelligence. I think that everything in the world is interconnected and enjoy building connections between seemingly incompatible issue areas. Let's prove those who don't believe we can wrong!

Maria Chaplia is European Affairs Associate at the Consumer Choice Center. It took us 75 years to rebuild freedom in some parts of Europe after the totalitarian horrors of World War Two, and less than three weeks to bring it to its knees again.

On March 30, Hungary’s parliament passed a law that allows the leader of the country’s nationalist movement, Viktor Orban,

Alerte : une épidémie autoritaire s’abat sur l’Europe de l’Est

75 ans ont été nécessaires pour reconstruire la liberté après la Seconde Guerre mondiale, seulement trois semaines auront suffi pour la mettre à genoux. Par Maria Chaplia, associée aux affaires européennes au Consumer Choice Center. À travers l’Europe, la lutte contre le coronavirus est utilisée sans retenue pour affaiblir la démocratie face à l’autoritarisme, principalement à l’Est où les gouvernements remettent en question la liberté de la presse et la liberté d’expression.

Embracing free trade during a pandemic

Whether we will be able to get back on track on globalisation and economic liberalisation will be one of the most important tests for the post-coronavirus world. While lockdowns introduced by some governments are hopefully not going to stay there indefinitely, the perception of the role of international cooperation is likely to undergo some substantial shifts in the long run. International trade as a key instrument of promoting peace and prosperity will be a first casualty.

Побороть коронавирус с помощью изменения генов: что это такое и как работает

Кордони закриваються, літаки скасовують рейси, а заводи призупиняють діяльність. Вчені та лікарі працюють над тестами, методами лікування та вакцинами, щоб незабаром надати медичну відповідь. Коронавірус може бути одним з найбільших випробувань, з якими людство стикалися за останні десятиліття, але він не буде останньою загрозою, яку нам потрібно перемогти. Саме тому настав час звернути увагу на напрацювання біонауки та дозволити застосування методів генетичної зміни.

Pregnancy health warning labels are biased and flawed

When I was in the 7th form, our biology teacher showed us a smoker’s lung model followed by a brief explanation of the negative effects of smoking. But the model of the damaged lungs itself was enough to educate me, a 13-year-old, about the health consequences I would have to deal with if I ever choose to smoke. This is the essence of freedom that penetrates our adult lives: free choices made in full awareness of the responsibility that follows. Be it alcohol, cigarettes, or sugar. Complex maths
