I have a background in international relations, peace studies and diplomacy. I am based in Belgrade where I have gained my degree and currently work. My main interests are development policies, cultural exchange and creative writing.
Why I joined FutureLab Europe? I believe that FutureLab Europe significantly contributes to the development of open-minded and progressive youth advocates who have the ambition to play an active role in the future of their countries and of Europe.
Why do I think that Europe needs active citizens? Active citizenship is about being passionate about the causes that are important to you. That is how we can change the world we live in and create close-knit communities.
