2 Marjeta GojičHi, my name is Marjeta. I'm a student at the Faculty of Humanities in Koper. I chose the Intercultural Language Mediation course programme because I'd love to learn new languages and deepen my knowledge of Italian and English. I've spent my life in a bilingual territory, so I've learned to understand and cherish it's peculiarities. I hope that some day my love for languages and my interest in the study of different sociocultural backgrounds will help protect such cultural environments. I sincerely enjoy working with people. I'm curious, I love to feel helpful and share my knowledge. My idea of having a good time always includes creative challenge and team working, so it is no wonder that along with portrait drawing I got interested in the art of make-up and spend my leisure time organizing and setting up photo shoots, connecting with young clothing, jewellery, accessory designers, independent film makers and musicians. This project doesn't have to be just informative and educational - let's make it fun :)
3 With friends before a concert Marko DimačI'm a second year student and I study Intercultural linguistic mediation. My goal is to help people understand each other because I think that this is the first step towards a better world. This is one of the reasons why I have chosen this study program. I speak Slovenian, Italian, English, Serbo-Croatian and a bit of German and Spanish.I cannot stand conformism, especially mental conformism. This is why I think in a socially critical way. I regard this ability as crucial in this mass media overwhelmed society. My anticonformism is also expressed through my appearance since I dress like an 80's rocker and wear long hair. I am a free spirit and a dreamer. I have problems with strict hierarchies and I hardly take orders because I think all people are diverse and equal.I like going to rock concerts, listening to 80's rock music, hanging out with my friends and taking walks in nature. I am also an activist. I think that we are all obliged to leave the world in a better condition for the future generations.With friends before a concert

5 Katja StojićI am an 18 year old girl who above all likes stories. Whether they are in a shape of a book, film, anime, TV show, it doesn't really matter, as long as it is a good one. I'm a first year student of The Media Studies at The Faculty of Humanities Koper. I was born in Kranj, so I had to move to Koper this year. I speak English, Spanish, a bit of French and I just started taking an Italian course.I like reading science fiction, history, adventure and love novels, hanging out with my friends and taking long walks along the beach or in the forest where I can get inspired. I also enjoy watching animes, Japanese cartoons and going to the cinema.My way of expressing myself is throughout words. I manly write prose – short stories and novels, but I've also started writing poems in English. I believe art has a huge importance in our lives and I don't like people who say that's not true and have zero imagination. I also can't stand phonies, liars and people who have prejudices towards a certain religion, skin color, nationality, etc.My goal in life is to move to Ireland or Great Britain and live there, surrounded with green grass, that's just so different from ours (our 'green color' is not really green), nice people who have just an amazing accent and of course, their culture which still believes in magic. I would like to work in the publishing business, the press or maybe as an event planer or something like that, where I could use my imagination and creativity.
