From the age of fourteen, I have been committed to the empowerment of young people. I joined the U.S. Embassy’s Youth Council in Macedonia because I strongly believe that it is the pillar that complements my academic and practical interest in creating the conditions to empower youth in Macedonia. Currently as a Youth Council Co-Director I enjoy volunteering my time serving on the Youth Council because it allows me to meet other passionate young people in Macedonia and include them in our initiatives, such as the Career Expo.
Additionally, I joined the Youth Council to share my volunteer record to encourage young people to join the global network of Youth Councils established by the U.S. Department of State. I do so through my commitment to build networks among young people such as sharing our best practices to the U.S. Embassy’s Youth Council in Sofia, Bulgaria. The Youth Council enables me to effectively reach out to regional, national and international stakeholders, and I strongly encourage Macedonia’s youth to join and support our initiatives.
