Florenta first became known when she made the cover of International Gymnast Magazine in January 1999 with her best friend, Florica Leonida. They were featured in an article about up-and-coming Romanian talents. In the fall of 1998 they spent six weeks in the United States training at an American gym with their coach, Eliza Stoica. Florenta experienced the Thanksgiving holiday, where her favorite food was a green bean casserole.
Florenta injured her hip in early 2002 and it has been reported that she has given up gymnastics and moved back home to Bucharest with her family. Best luck to Florenta in the future.
