I am a SOL coordinator in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
First time I heard about SOL was at the first TETA conference in Tuzla in 2013. And then if I remember right, I met Grenville at the HUPE conference in Sibenik next year, and after that Mark had a mini SOL-TETA conference through Bosnia and Herzegovina. I remember that I wanted to get the prize to visit Devon and I learned by heart the leaflet that I got from the SOL desk. I thought someone will check my knowledge about Devon if I got drawn. After that, I believe the cooperation and plans to involve this little country into the SOL family was in realisation for the next few years. I loved the process because I knew it was worth it.
I love the family vibe. I love how people stick together and how everyone seems to know each other for a lifetime. I also love how professional SOL is and the opportunities it offers. For me, SOL has fulfilled my lifelong dream – to visit England and gave me some perspectives that I have never thought of.
I like how diverse and strong SOL is and how it offers opportunities for people that are not in the position to attend, see, travel and take courses in England. I think SOL can be one of the main international connections between English teachers, students of English and indigenous language, culture and customs.
I am an activist in my local community, I also work as a journalist in the local media, volunteer a lot online and offline and enjoy growing up with my 6 years old son.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is heart-like country with beautiful scenery, nature and interesting people. We are famous for our food and interesting customs, as well as complicated political and administrational system (I know, I know, your country is strange as well, but mine is chaotic :D ).
