Taras Stojković

Taras Stojković is a person whose personality today has been shaped by exceptional life circumstances. He is an inspiring, hardworking, organized, multicultural, energetic, dedicated, versatile, and devoted young man who thinks that the world would be a much more organized and beautiful place to live in if everyone dedicated themselves a little more to make it that way. Starting from ourselves. And this is exactly what Taras does every day – always trying to achieve more and become a better person than he was yesterday.

Taras is very grateful for his multicultural way of growing up. He was born in Nigeria, in the heart of Africa; he is a Canadian citizen of Serbian and Russian descent; and has studied in Serbia, Ukraine, Jamaica, Canada, and Australia. It was exactly these circumstances that directed him towards the broad spectrum of interests he developed and is further developing and passing on to future generations. He strongly believes that everyone can create conditions that they desire and that learning never stops. Maybe he sets such high goals for himself because he does not take things for granted, or maybe, he is just an extraordinary person to whom every new success is an incentive to continue and a wind in the back that always pushes him forward and does not let him give up even when it seems as if there is lack of energy. Taras is a member of numerous international organizations, long-time volunteer, dedicated student, young businessman, civil engineer and innovator, cosmopolitan, ambassador of several world student and cultural organizations, consultant, project manager, but also much more. In addition to all this, Taras is an open, cheerful, and curious person who is always ready to socialize, travel, work, and live for new experiences.

It is true that people forget about 90% of their dreams, so dreams need to be written down and plans need to be made to realize those dreams.
