It is important to never give up!
By Dzelila Dizdarevic
After every rain comes the sunshine. It is the same with happiness. The luck knocked on my door on the day when I was informed that I had become a BOSANA scholarship recipient. That year I finished the first year of studies at the Faculty of Economics, University of Zenica. It was difficult. I lived with my father and my three sisters. Many times I was thinking about giving up but my hope kept me going on.
During the summer break, while scrolling on the internet I saw a BOSANA scholarship application. I've applied without much thinking and after one month I was invited to an interview. That same day, BOSANA staff invited me to participate in their social project. I had the opportunity to get to know other BOSANA students as well. From that moment my development and learning started.
I did not have much support from my friends and others before BOSANA. Everybody was sceptical about my path but now I am very happy where I am. I am a successful third-year student and an active volunteer at the LOTOS association in Zenica, where I work with children in need. And you know what? The best feeling is when you put a smile on children's faces and when you know you're the reason for someone's happiness.
I am so thankful to the Bosana Foundation, thank you Ajlana and Senita for giving me the opportunity to move forward and be a better version of myself. As I wrote before, the best feeling is to be a reason for someone's happiness. Bosana is the reason for my happiness.
From Zenica with love.
