“This is one very important step that leads to leadership and taking on important roles in our society that are more challenging, harder and more serious”, said Sulejman Abazović after completing the first module.
The proof is Abazović. Through his dedicated work, this young leader is working on promotion of mutual dialogue between young people in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and attendance at the Academy should further improve knowledge and skills which this young student from Gornji Vakuf indisputably owns.
