“I am exceptionally proud for being a member of the oldest symphonic orchestra in Macedonia. It is a great honour and privilege to be the first employed harpist in this institution since its founding. I love my job, which permanently inspires me, makes me happy and teaches me new things about music and communication with people. I like the energy on stage which I share with my dear colleagues, eminent soloists and conductors. I am fulfilled by the humanity expressed through my playing for all of the children with special needs.

I am curious and adventuristic by nature, I love traveling, nature, sport. I love humour, but I also like spirituality. I love to cook and I quite often use the spice of love. Small things make me happy, as well as my friends and life.”
