Adina Achim

Developmental Editor, Ghostwriter, Writer, Managing Editor

Adina Laura Achim is not only a UN Women’s Empower Women “Champion for Change” but also a published author, entrepreneur, leader, political science scholar, and PR executive.

Adina’s journey from a small town in her native Romania to building a life as an international affairs scholar and Human Rights activist was lengthy and challenging. She commenced her unlikely story at Schiller International University where, under the influence of her professors, she discovered her calling for International Relations and Diplomacy. Her long-lasting passion for politics and international affairs reached its height in 2010 with her first book in Italian: Romania 1988-2008: 20 Anni di Transizione alla Democrazia.

After obtaining two master’s degrees in International Studies and Human Rights Protection, Adina began her career working as a consultant in the Economic Department of the Rome City Council in Italy. Following her time in Rome, she took a position at the Romanian Embassy in Washington DC, where she first encountered the human rights work of the Organization of American States. This was Adina’s first experience not only with the world’s oldest regional organization but also with Latin America. Since then, Adina embarked on a lifelong love affair with Latin America, which has influenced her major fiction writings, such as her travel book about Buenos Aires: Captivanta Cucerire.

One year later, Adina decided to move from the public to the private sector where for years, she worked in several corporate positions in the PR and marketing departments of energy companies until her intellectual curiosity and creativity pushed her to explore a different career path. Leaving behind a stable Public Relations Executive position in the energy sector, Adina decided to pursue a career in luxury retail, Public Relations, and lifestyle journalism.

Today, Adina’s work appears in some of the world’s most important lifestyle publications (e.g. L’Officiel, Cosmopolitan, Buro 24/7, Grazia, Society Magazine, Fashion TV, ZINK Magazine) and has been translated into English, Spanish, Slovene, Bulgarian, Armenian, and Russian. The success of her columns also led to the creation of her style book, Reguli de Stil (published in 2012), which became the groundwork for an updated version, Pearls and Elegance (published in English in 2014).

Beyond her notable resume, Adina is also lauded for her political engagement and humanitarian activism. Her name is broadly associated with nonprofits that fight against human trafficking and pediatric cancer and for the rights of the refugees and Asylum seekers. After months of reporting on the challenges that refugees have to overcome before they reach a safe haven, Adina embarked on a humanitarian project to Lesbos, Greece in January 2016.

Although her academic credentials are impressive, having graduated with honors from both her undergraduate and master’s degree, Adina has never considered herself someone who belongs to the intelligentsia. She has always felt more comfortable exploring the developing world than remaining in European academic circles, and her wanderlust has carried her to every corner of the world. Largely because of her career choices, Adina has had the opportunity to live in fifteen countries on four different continents, making her a quintessential global citizen.

With eight books published in three languages and her byline on numerous articles and reviews, Adina is happy to be living the life of a modern storyteller, while remaining faithful to her own values and her quest for authenticity.

How Hermès Won China’s Heart

In the luxury world, Hermès’ iconic Birkin bag is one of the ultimate status symbols. A Birkin has become, for many, the Rolls-Royce Phantom of leather accessories: something so rare, precious, and exclusive, that we instantly associate it with royalty, celebrities, or fashion icons. But despite its prominence and popularity, not many people realize a Hermès bag is a good financial investment.
