As she told in her interview she always strived for becoming professional in law. "In my childhood I always dreamt about becoming a journalist or someone like this. I mean I did not know for sure whom to become and I was kind of jumping from one profession to another. However, when I was studying at school, I always wanted to become an international journalist and additionally I was always interested in law. But as years passed my interest in the social subjects grew higher and higher. Furthermore, I was always very much interested in English language. But later it happened so that I regularly participated in different kind of competitions at school like subject olympiada etc.

So I participated in all of them, in all subjects. And I always took the first places. However since my major interest was English I wanted to participate mainly in competitions of this subject, but once my law teacher came and asked me to participate in the competition in law and he said: “With only language I would not succeed much, if I knew the language and I had some kind of another specialty in that case I would go further.” Then I thought for a while and I agreed and took part at that competition at school level and later I started preparing for the city level.

My teacher was a really great teacher, he did very good job in terms of preparing. While preparing, I had to learn all the articles of the Constitution by heart, I had to read a lot of laws and during this process I became more and more interested in law and then I took part in those several competitions related to law. I always got the first places. After some time “love” appeared, and I felt that knowing law and becoming a lawyer, someone specialist in law would give me much more than the journalist or something else. Hence by that time I had already fallen in love with law. After some time I went to the US and I started there as an exchange student for a year and I chose different subjects based on law and then participated also again in many different kind of competitions and at that time I felt that my path was law, I determined that law was my future.

Since childhood, I always dreamt about such university like WIUT, where there is international standard quality of education and where specializations are taught in a foreign language. When WIUT was opened I was very happy, because I was expecting so much such kind of University. Therefore, when I applied to this university and when I was finishing my CIFS year which was foundation year, my parents wanted me to choose another course, but no, because of my love to law, I chose it. Based on different case scenario, based on real life events I saw that knowledge of law could save the lives of millions people. So, law is my destiny. It has already become my life destiny."
