It’s been two years since the first post here….
… the previous year was full of the new experiences which made it the best year of my life…
I had never won any prize at any competition before this one. After I had sent my work in order to participate at “RAF Challenge”, I was very excited because I felt that I had some chances to win this time. What intuition said, was proven to be true – I won the 3rd place with my application called “Cloud Computing”.
Even though I had participated in many different competitions, I have never had seen something like this before. It was “Business challenge” competition – cooperating with strangers, we had to create business idea, business plan and the presentation within several hours. After that we were up to present our idea in front of more than 100 people and reply to jury’s questions.
Even though I didn’t win anything at the previous “Business Challenge”, I was invited to compete at the highest level of this competition: “Western Balkans Business Challenge” altogether with students from Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. During two amazing days, we had fabulous schedule which included successful people’s speeches, funny ice-breaking activities and the party. My team won the second place.
The summer was very active. I attended “Creative programming for Digital media & Mobile Apps” and “Nutrition and Physical activity for health” on Coursera.org and earned two PDF certificates.
At the very ending of the summer, I participated in Alumni conference. During two days we heard more about Junior Achievement organisation, Alumni club goals, listened to successful people and generally learned new things about entrepreneurship.
I was invited to join the National finals of Business Challenge to compete against other students from Serbia. My team won the second place.
And the blog has officially dived in the third year of its existence and some different content will come this year!
Тhe voting is over, the results are here!
Thanks to the voting of many during the last week, my application “Cloud Computing” has qualified for the finals!
In 3 days (Saturday 30), I shall go to Belgrade, with my professor, to present the application to the jury, so they can decide the winners.
Okay! This was a short report, the next one will be here on Saturday!
Special thanks to the professors, students and other good people who voted and made this happen!
Meet people, think innovative and it’s SHOW TIME!
Junior Achievement organized a competition called “Business challenge” in Serbia, where 115 students were separated in 22 groups and have been given a challenge to think of a company which would produce an innovative product or a service, based on the new technologies.
I have never participated in this type of competition. In a great number of the competitions your score depends on what you have learned before it, like maths, physics and similar. Therefore, this one brings a totally new dimension of competing where you need to express your creativity and social skills at their best!
