Amila is currently a junior at the University of Sarajevo Law School. Dedicating her time to others and helping people is what makes her feel fulfilled, and that is the reason she is a volunteer and scholar at the Hastor Foundation. Spending her time away from home since high school has taught her how important it is to surround yourself with right kind of people. Therefore, she sees MUN as the best opportunity to meet young people who motivate her and who are willing to make a difference in the world. She likes spending her free time reading and writing poetry, and recently one of her poems was published in young authors’ anthology of poems „Otisak“, published by the Metamorfoza Association.

This year I am part of ON and it is a great honor to be part of this very important project for our diplomatic and student society as well as for the city of Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
Being chosen for position of PR person twice in a row, it is my utmost pleasure doing the same role in this year’s conference edition. As the time was passing by, my passion for MUNs has grown and I have been participating in other MUN conferences where I had an amazing opportunity to revitalize the friendships forged during Sarajevo Model UN ’16. On another note, I must admit that I am in love with Morocco- an unparalleled jewel, and its wide range of colorful streets.
