Hristina Trifunovska is from Resen and has spent her exchange year in Portland, OR. She says that the YES program was life changing experience for her. Even after 10 years after she’s been on the program she continues to share and apply what she has learnt in the US. All of the friends and family she has made there, all of the extracurricular activities she took part in, all of the classes she enjoyed, made her one year an unforgettable experience that leads her in her everyday life.
After she came back from US, she started being a very active member of the YES Alumni community. She finished high school in Resen then enrolled in the e-business department of the faculty of Economics in Skopje. At the same time she became an Alumni Coordinator and organized many different alumni projects that supported different community activities. She also served as TA during many Pre Departure Orientations in order to motivate students to be active and enjoy their exchange year to the fullest.
After earning her Bachelor’s Degree she started her professional career as a digital marketer, and currently works at a local company in Resen as Digital Marketing Manager, overseeing the marketing activities and the marketing team in three countries: Albania, Kosovo and Serbia.
She strongly believes that what she has managed to accomplish during these past 10 years is very much a result of the experience and knowledge gained on the YES program and as a member of the large family of YES alumni!
