DANKA from Bosnia: "Real entrepreneur is creating opportunity from every trouble."

Danka Božić (Banja Luka, BiH)

 

One of the sentences that I learned on college and will always remember is: "Real entrepreneur is creating opportunity from every trouble." Every time I think about leaving I think of this sentence and think about what it would be if each of us has found that one trouble and turned it into an opportunity.

According to all statistics and research, Bosnia and Herzegovina is not an ideal place for young people.

According to the same research there are many problems and troubles that obstruct the country’s functioning, and forecasts for improvement of the situation in the country are not promising.

Many of my friends and acquaintances, young people, want a "one way ticket" to one of "promised lands". I think about it every day and I ask myself whether this is the right path to happiness and success of young people in BiH. But no, I do not want to leave BiH because it would mean a defeat for me. It would be a defeat because I do not want to hide from problems, to run into the unknown with hope that I will have a better future.
