For the past 4 years I have been part of Swisscontact’s Increasing Market Employability Programme. We are working on creating employment opportunities for young people in Macedonia. Being a young person myself I realize that working with Swisscontact is about providing opportunities for others, but also about being given the opportunities to learn and progress as an employee. I started my career as a project administrator, was able to learn from my colleagues and attend several trainings. With hard work and dedication, I was appointed SEC coordinator and as of recently became Communication officer for IME. It was all possible because of the opportunities I was given. But being able to give back is also important. I am also extremely happy to be able to put my expertise in safety in adventure tourism to use and support the development of safety management systems for adventure tourism in Macedonia. This means more tourists will come and more jobs will be created. I feel proud knowing that my work matters for the people of Macedonia.
