My thoughts and expectations
Researching cultures and applying my knowledge in life is a wonderful feeling as I am changing myself and my surroundings into something better. There is no better place for me than Brussels, the center of multiculturalism, a place where ideas that change the world are born, to move my boundaries once more. Some of the objectives of this program that I find particularly important are learning about building data, client communication and building network capacity, enlarging network for future collaboration (partners, experts, and clients), better understanding the context and mechanism of EU funding, writing project documentation and making project applications, developing project management skills.
Having completed high school and professional education as a Hotel-Tourist Technician, and working in the Tourism sector for over 12 years I have gained various skills in communicating with people of different cultures as well as the knowledge of English, German, Spanish and Italian language. I gained my title of Bachelor of Economics at Baltazar Polytechnic in Zaprešić with a focus on Cultural management and I was an Erasmus business management student in Vilnius Gediminas Technical University in Lithuania. I am a certificated EU Project Manager and a graduate student of Project Management at the Baltazar, with only a graduate thesis left and I chose the “Energy self-sustaining community with a social factory model’’ as my subject.
