Meet Teodor Nicula-Golovei, a Cambridge alumnus, International Relations master’s student, and YouTuber! His YouTube Channel focuses on self-improvement, productivity, and social science videos. Ultimately, he strives to help people in their quest to “become better humans.” Specific examples of content that he publishes are vlogs of his daily life as a student, “how to” videos (e.g., “How to Manage Your Time at University”), and “study with me” videos.

Teo is 22 years old and hails from Romania, but lives in Vienna, Austria. In trying to manage a jam-packed schedule with his coursework, YouTube channel, and other side projects, he notes that he is “always looking for better ways to organize [his] time.”

It’s a visual planner. It is built exactly the way I’ve been visualizing my days in my head ever since I was a child, but I’ve never seen that visualization implemented anywhere else before.

What’s your favorite part about Owaves?

The visualization of the schedule.

What is the biggest challenge Owaves helped you overcome?

The lack of motivation to work out regularly at home.
