Anniversary of the blog & The best year of my life

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…

The first big success

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”.

Completely new experience

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.

A little bit more of that experience…

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.

Two PDF certificates earned

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.

Alumni conference

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.

Junior Achievement: Business challenge [ the impressions ]

Meet people, think innovative and it’s SHOW TIME!

junior-achievement

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!
