Youth of Macedonia #11

I really think that Macedonia has a lot of potential to prosper, particularly because of its youth. I was the Student Body President at a local high school in Gostivar when Maths became a compulsory subject in the exit examination. Having more than 2,000 students came together to protest against the decision, made me realize that nothing can stop a united, persistent and strong youth.

I now study Computer Science and Engineering and I am a web developer. Programming is my passion and this is the career path I would always like to pursue. There were some tough times during my high school years, but I have overcome these with the help of my family, friends, and my inner strength. So never let anyone weaken your inner power, or silence your inner voice! This is the only way forward to an open minded society, hard-working and aspiring youth.
