One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have done and seen a couple of 'amazing' things to be honest, but the one I take pride particularly in is working on reconciliation between Croats and Serbs and all other ethnic groups in the Balkans through one international youth and peace organization. I was project coordinator and voluntary President and I am proud that I gave my contribution in fight against nationalism,fascism, xenophobia and racism and materialism.
