Your function and/or responsibilities related to digital skills training and empowerment
I have a lot of experiences in project management and organization, as I managed several project, especially as a president of the largest student organization in Slovenia. I work on youth topics for 10 years, and the past 6 years I devoted my time to work also with elder. In 2012 and 2013 I was among 50 most successful Slovenian women. In 2011 I participated in 2-month program field trip through USA, where the students had the opportunity to explore the ICT sector by visiting Microsof, Facebook, IBM, Google, Mozzila, Cisco, NetApp and some universities, such as Stanford, Berkley, UCLA and Miami. This was a very notable life experience.
I'm in charge of the whole Simbioza project with many different sectors (e-Simbioz@, Simbioza Masters, Simbioza Schools, Simbioza International, Marketing, PR, Intergenerational center, Simbioza Moves), as in 2013 Simbioza became a sustainable story. I started to work on Simbioza since its beginnings in 2011, and see this project as an opportunity to cooperate, connect and co-create.
