Currently I am working as a researcher at the Institute for democracy “Societas Civilis” in Skopje. I have now for years worked on corruption and Parliament monitoring and reform. I mention my working place first, because it has been a very important empowering place for me. In this line I believe it is important to create comfortable working spaces for women across the country, but also motivate them to join new ventures and do something different.

Coming from a conservative background, finding a job more suitable for women has always been a priority. To challenge this behavior, my goal has been to work towards a society which encourages women to take on any challenge they desire and normalize non-standard jobs for women.

I think that through Stella I will be able to work towards a society more open for women in many ways. Not just work place comfort, but also a place where “different” is celebrated and not deemed inappropriate.

I believe there is a lot of work ahead of us, but I am willing to stick to my ideal of an equal society in Macedonia. I believe that girls deserve better, and that through Stella we can make a change.
