Ja sam Azra, živim u Bosni i Hercegovini. Radim u prodavnici kozmetike i prva sam zaposlena osoba sa Down sindromom u mojoj zemlji. Pored posla, treniram džudo sport vec duže vrijeme i u tome sam dosta uspješna . Želim pokazati ljudima u mojoj sredini da i mi možemo biti uspješni, samo nam treba dati priliku, podržati nas i poslušati naše želje. Moj glas se čuje!

I am Azra, I live in Bosnia & Herzegovina. I work in a cosmetic shop and I am the first person with Down syndrome in my country, with full employment contract. I also train judo for years, and I am very successful with it. I want to show to people in my community that we can be successful, we just need an opportunity and support, we need them to listen to us and to our dreams and wishes. My voice is heard!
