In 2009 in Serbia on the move, she found people who have grown tired of waiting for changes to happen by themselves, people who have not lost hope that in our country one can live in dignity and who believe that there is a huge untapped potential in each of us.

Besides the experience she gained at Serbia on the Move, what’s still keeping her there is not just the constant opportunity for personal development, but first and foremost the people she gathers. She likes their values and differences, and the fact that they don’t wait for somebody else to solve the problem if something bothers them. Instead, they take the initiative. It’s the company that doesn’t stop at first obstacle and first “no”, but starts working even harder, focuses on the goal and in the end says “We did it!”.
