On Wednesday, December 5th 2018, the certificates for participation in UMiD and also certificates for UMiD for political leaders (UMiDp) were given out. Recipients of the certificates were “Source of Hope” funded students, Samira Aličić and Dragana Vučković.
“UMiD was a life-changing experience. I learned many new things, perfected my skills and got to meet many different young people. We all came in as individuals, with our own individual goals, from different fields of work, and different age, but we were a group that shared a common goal: to become leaders in our respective communities. Fairly quickly we became a team ready to fight off the most difficult tasks and societal problems, and we finish our training as members of a large family. This certificate for me personally, does not represent the ending, but a new beginning. I am now ready to change myself and my community, and I have a team of people in support”, said Samira Aličić.
