It motivates me when life challenges me to do new things in order to advance my learning process continuously. Music is my passion, however I am open for everything that requires motivated, fast learning, young people. Organising is one of my greatest strengths, where I steadily look for the optimal and most rational way of succeeding. Therefore, I like to work in a team, in which, through the variety of experiences given by the team members, we can achieve the best possible solution. My goal oriented character, and my open-minded personality facilitates the collaboration with other people. I am ambitious, reliable and creative, which helps me to cope with tasks, even in stressful situations.
