Don’t give up on your dreams.
Since I was born, I lived in a small, beautiful, fairytale-like town, Opatija, situated on the Croatian coast. I spent my childhood with my Grandmother and Grandfather who were always very supportive. My Grandfather had always encouraged me in reading and my Grandmother in piano playing, in attending ballet lessons and practicing recitations. I dutifully attended all the courses, but the happiest I was when I was drawing with my colored pencils. My life’s wish was to attend the Art Academy, but I didn’t succeed.
To make the story shorter, this is how my life’s dream, after all, did become truth.
One day, my mother, knowing I was always interested in that, brought me a newspaper article about a newly-opened university course in industrial design and art in the School of Architecture, University of Venice. Although I read the article with the highest interest, I put it in a drawer, since my life at that moment was full of other duties.
After a while I was looking for something in my drawer, and suddenly the article about the course in industrial design fell out. That was the moment when my life changed. I started the Course in Industrial Design in Venice and all I was dreaming about started to become reality.
Despite all the obstacles and problems in life, don’t ever give up on your dream, it always becomes reality.
