As a Bosnian born Australian who is employed within the Human Resources field, I had an opportunity to work in one of the leading employers within Bosnia and Herzegovina where I ran a graduate program. This program opened my eyes to the talent, passion, intellect, motivation, creativity and knowledge the young professionals in this country demonstrated. Unfortunately, I also met a lot of youth that also possessed these attributes but were not able to continue their education due to the economic situation their families were in. This was a major reality check for me given that I live in a country like Australia where I had access to education to pursue my dreams and goals. I believe everyone should be provided with an opportunity for education and to utilise their talents, knowledge and skills to help make the world a better place. The Bosnia & Herzegovina Futures Foundation is a positive step in the right direction in providing disadvantaged students and young professionals with opportunities to make their mark in the world.
