By Simona Ristovska, Alumni Coordinator for Macedonia

To mark the 10th Anniversary of the Youth Exchange and Study program, alumnae Dime Galapchev ’10, Maja Hristovska ’10, Irina Conevska ’10, Noemi Chausidis ’11 and Marija Indova ’12 and I made a special video entitled “What does YES mean to you?”

As a group, we chose to do a stop motion video at the American Councils office in Skopje. In the video,we included our personal opinions about what being YES alumni means to us.  It was interesting and funny shooting over 600 photos for a 1 min video. Maja shared, “I laugh when I see my funny faces in the video and I really enjoyed making this.”

The YES alumni association in Macedonia and the American Councils staff members congratulate the 10th birthday of the Youth Exchange and Study Program.
