Who are you, what did you want to be as a child and what do you do now at UniCredit?
It is always difficult to answer questions like “who are you?” because we all have many roles in our lives. My most important roles are as a sister, girlfriend, niece, granddaughter, friend, etc. In short – I am 29 years old, living in Sarajevo and I work at UniCredit as Head of Restructuring. As a child I wanted to be a journalist and I worked as a journalist for 5 years before joining UniCredit. It took me 5 long years to realise that my childhood dreams were not really what I wanted for myself.
What do you enjoy most about your job and what is the proudest moment or greatest achievement of your career?
I enjoy changes the most and constantly learning new things. I believe that change is the only real constant in life and I really enjoy how we all develop, improve and grow every day. The proudest moment of my career is almost the entire past year, which brought about a lot of challenges for all of us, both privately and professionally. We adapted to situations, changed habits, processes and ways of working almost every day and we managed to come out of it all as winners.
And what is the hardest part?
The hardest part is also the one I'm most proud of. And that is, as I just said, almost the entire past year. The time of lockdown, bad news every day, illness, caring for loved ones and constant fear was challenging for each of us. I really must say that I am very proud of everything we went through together. Especially the fact that in unknown and difficult circumstances, we were equally dedicated to our work and provided constant support to all our clients.
What advice would you give your younger self or somebody considering this role as a career?
The advice I would give to everyone, regardless of their current position, is to believe in yourselves, work on yourselves and follow your dreams. Don’t be afraid of new challenges and never let fear stop you from doing something.
