Always proud of the success of our Support Fund for Talented High School Students “Talents Today – Leaders Tomorrow” scholars. On this occasion, we share with you the success of Tamara Stojanovska, a student at the secondary vocational school “Ss. Cyril and Methodius” (health department) in Ohrid.
“I finished the previous school year with great success and many activities, including practical teaching in Ohrid health facilities. I did my internship for a month, during the summer, in the urology department, and I am currently attending a regular internship in the cardiology department. During the practice, I gained knowledge in the field of nurses’ tasks, and attended interventions in and outside the operating room. Most of them were endoscopic procedures.”
She was also a participant in several extracurricular activities, among which we single out:
- Participation in the educational rendezvous of the youth association of secondary vocational schools “MASSUM”, which was held in Veles;
- Participation in the Media literacy Program “Young voices”, where the discussion was focused on the question: Is it possible to succeed in our country?
“I think we are definitely lacking in professional mentorship for children from an early age, considering their talents and abilities, in order to bring out the best in them and let them know what career they should further be developing. I am saying this because every day we come across cases where the one who is supposed to be a professional cannot do his/her job properly or does it against his/her will. So far, my persistence was enough for me to succeed, and I hope that it will be the same in the future” – said Tamara Stojanovska.
- She won second place in an innovation competition organized by Junior Achievement Macedonia. Then she and her team were invited to the fair where they successfully stood out among other more experienced innovators with their project to convert the kinetic energy of people moving along the promenade in Ohrid into electrical energy as a partial solution to the country’s energy crisis.
In addition, in the past period she competed in several karate tournaments throughout Macedonia. First of all in Skopje at the “20th Traditional International Karate Tournament “Solidarnost Open 2022” where she won the first place in the individual female kumite-kata category -53 kg. Later, as hosts of the “Ohrid Open 2022” tournament, an international competition with participants from Ukraine, Italy, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia and Bulgaria also took part, she won the third place in the individual women’s kata category.
Keep up the great work Tamara!
