Campaign I wish for myself was a unique opportunity for young people, especially for those from the North of Montenegro, to see that a small town does not necessarily mean the inability to progress.
While being in Pljevlja I met a great Alen Demirovic who is a hairdresserand vice-champion of Europe. I met Radoslav Zecevic, who is twenty years old and has found a clever way to use resources of the North and, for many years, heis successfully engaged in beekeeping.He studies at the Faculty of Agriculture and earns his own money.
I also met young volunteers from Bijelo Polje, whom, unfortunately, are not many, but they are committed to their desire and readyto bringthe positive change in their communities - they organized a charity concert to help their fellow citizens, events for young people, in order encourage their peers to be active and improve their status in society.
The greatest risk is not taking the risk
At the motivational events, young people urged their peers to wake up, to pursue themselves to reach higher goals, to forget about limits and to give the best they can - not to wait for their dreams to come true, but to take concrete steps to meet them and their better future. "Not to wait all week for Friday, all year round for summer, and life-long for happiness," but to go for it immediately!
The workshops encouraged networking and mutual introducing of participants. Many friendships were born, and some new projects started. One of them you can see at the web address http://ivanazoric.wordpress.com/ - Ivana Zoric, a sixteen year old girl, who is also the youngest motivation speaker, set up a blog, through which she is tryingto reach out their peers in Berane.
Suturesare in our hands. Do everything you want, try, because "the greatest risk is not taking the risk."
In late August we will continue to develop our friendships during a three-day camp for youth. We will have the opportunity to connect, learn how to write a CV, motivation letter, meet with people and opportunities, write a plan for our future activities and get mentors who will help us to take our plans into action...Sign up!
