Originally from Romania, Ciprian chose the European Agency for Fundamental Rights in Vienna, as a place to do his internshp for half a year in 2014 in order to consolidate his academic and professional status.

After completing the Roma Graduate Preparation Program in 2010, Ciprian was admitted two years later at the University of Essex to do an MA in Theory and Practice and Human Rights. Ciprian decided to write his dissertation on the historic and legal circumstances surrounding the Romani educational crisis, analysing the legal and social injutices. Thanks to SRT that enabled him to be part of the European Agency for Fundamental Rights, Ciprian could "gain sufficient skills, strategies and techniques as well as confidence to embark on a career dedicated to the cause of human rights, Roma topics and human dignity".
