Personal motto:

"Whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from methodically knocking people's hats off - then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball." - Herman Melville, Moby Dick

She tried to ignore it, forget about it or even make it go away, but writing has always been a part of Otilia’s life, from poems and one bad hip-hop song (a long time ago), to constant writing side gigs on a variety of topics, including medicine, HR and lifestyle, apart from her main work in the online industry.

The greatest adventure began with her Political Science and International Relations studies, and after many twists and turns, Otilia is now proud to start a new chapter at autoevolution.com, among colleagues with such inspiring talent (and annoying typing speed).

In her secret life, she directs movies and solves crimes, and in the real world, her favorite moments are those spent in nature, with animals or immersed in fiction.
