The Spouse of President Pendarovski, Elizabeta Gjorgievska, attended and addressed today’s event “She Flies with Her Own Wings”, organized as part of the Western Balkans Initiative of the Swedish Institute for She Entrepreneurs, supported by the Swedish Embassy in the country.
Addressing the audience, Gjorgievska stressed that success, like many other important things in life, does not know of age and that on the road to success young women need to be confident, combine ambition and inspiration and find their ideal place.
“Your story can inspire someone else, so share it with others and support other women to succeed.” Gjorgievska added that education is very important and that is why she has tried to learn from the best. She also urged that jobs should not be labeled for “men” and “women”, but that we should all strive for greater gender equality.
At the event, experiences from entrepreneurship were shared by successful business women from many foreign countries, including professors from Lund University in Sweden, aimed at motivating and inspiring them to engage women in the world of entrepreneurship.
The project was initiated by three young women who were part of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship training of the Swedish Institute in Lund. The event also included the award ceremony of Irena Jakimovska, Gzime Feizi and Fatma Bajram Azemovska for the achievements as successful women in their areas of activity.
