My way

She became aware of the legal profession through her participation in the Law Student Competition of the Faculty of Law at the University of Maribor in 2020, where she was given the opportunity to complete an internship at Gorjup Law Firm as part of the first prize. She was immediately impressed by the dynamics and complexity of the legal profession. In addition, she was also awarded the prize for the best speaker in the competition. In 2021, she participated in the Jessup Moot Court Competition (a simulation of the proceedings at the International Court of Justice in the Hague). At the intercontinental disputes, the participants won two prizes, Best Memorial for the Applicant and Best Memorial for the Respondent, and were also awarded the Perlach Prize for their achievements in competitions and tenders as well as other achievements. In 2022, she defended her Master’s thesis Defining Medical Error through Jurisprudence. Today, she continues to develop her social skills within the legal profession and refine her skills in helping people find holistic solutions to their problems. In her spare time, she enjoys sports, her favourite being horse riding, which helps her cope with daily stress and the fast pace of life, among other things. She also enjoys reading books, spending time in nature with her dog and collecting tropical plants.

Favourite quote: “Non desistas non exieris” (Never give up. Never give in).
