My name is Belma Kobaš, I was born on August 11th,2002
I've finished high school of Economics in Zenica and I'm currently a first-year studying social work at the Faculty of Political Sciences, University Sarajevo.
Until I was 14 I've moved from the countryside to another, wherein I had completed primary school. The work that came with living in a remote place gave many teachable experiences for me as a child and now an adult, it thought me discipline and what it takes for a work to be fully and properly realized into rewarding results. I had always found peace in nature, where it took me to train rock climbing. A sport that changed my life and gave me a new perspective on how every step is important and what truly a balanced thought process can give in a moment of your life. Even though the hardships that come with gaining strength both physically and mentally the impact that it had on me had had its worth. In the countryside, I was surrounded by people who had many troubles in their life financially whether it's having food for themselves and their children or their health. With living in such an environment I've learned how people gain strength even when hope is seemingly gone and that how giving someone even the smallest advice or help can contribute to their lives.
I found immense motivation from people who rose to find their strength even when faced with such difficulties that make it at times unbearable to stand.
From such experiences when I moved to the city I took the opportunity and was honored to volunteer in many humanitarian organizations such as Merhamet, then homes for the elderly, work with children with cerebral paralysis, and then working at the orphanage in Zenica and all of them I I've encountered many different personas and helped them as much as they helped me with education and finding answers and strength with many life's difficulties. And with that many more amazing opportunities where I've gotten to work with people and organizations that truly seek to give opportunities and help to not the powerless but the fighting kind of people.
Whereas I've realized that every person I had the opportunity to help is one the fighting kind that didn't give up even when faced with such hardships. And the first step was accepting help then proceeding to fight for many steps to come.
I can say that I'm grateful for such valuable lessons that gave me the strength to conquer my hardships, and therefore I wish to continue building my experience with the fighting kind of people.
