Q: What is the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is being in constant contact with different people, communicating with them and helping them get the best service possible. I love the fact that every client is different and has different needs and that makes my job interesting.

Q: What would make your job easier?

Applications. Us, millennials, live with the applications and technology and I think that in general we think that it makes our lives easier.

Q: What was your best idea last year?

My best idea last year was to seize the day and try to make the most of the situation that seemed bad at the time. I got stranded in Scotland because of the worst winter in the last 50 years. Surprisingly, a lot of good came out of it. I got to meet many new people who I still have contact with and who made an adventure out of being stuck on an island. Since then I have applied the mentality »seize the day« to my every day at work and it seems that it was the best decision I could have made.

Q: The most memorable event at your work for you?

I have not been employed for so long so I think it is hard to define just one event. I believe that the most memorable event is somewhere in my future, waiting for me to live it and store it in my memory forever. So I will get back to you with this answer as soon as it happens.

Q: What are you most proud of in business …?

In business, I am most proud of every congress that was successfully finished with smiles on clients’ faces. However, that was when I was still working at the registration office as a student. Nowadays I am most proud to be working here full time as Cankarjev dom is a beautiful building, full of hidden gems (for example our Štih Hall) and corridors that you can get lost in (for example the backstage of Gallus Hall). It is my pleasure to show clients around, to share my love for CD with everyone else and make them see what I see.

Q: … and privately?

Privately I am most proud of my family and friends. I know it sounds like a cliché, but it is the truth. They stick with me no matter what happens, they help me with advice when I need it and without them, I would not be the person I am today, not in business and not privately.

Q: Wisdom / motto?

I have always lived by the motto of Gandhi: »Be the change you want to see in the world.« If you want something to change, you have to start with yourself. One person at the time we can change the world and make it a more beautiful one for everyone living in it.
