My name is Jovana Nikolov. I am 22 year old student from Belgrade, Serbia. I finished my Bachelor studies in Belgrade as a youngest student with the highest grade in main subject-piano (10)
I applied for Master studies at University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria.
Considering that I have played a lot of concerts in Belgrade and International, one professor from Graz noticed my playing and invited me to apply for Master studies in his class. I passed the first round of entrance exam this July.
It would be very big opportunity to work with this professor and to improve myself in classical music because I am from Serbia and financial situation in my country is not so good, at the same time we are not EU citizen and Austrian visa is more strict for us. I need to show them that I will have sufficient amount of money to cover housing and living costs for 2020-21 academic year. If I reach the gold I would be able to continue my studies at Music University in Graz.
My parent have very small income monthly and they can not support me in this very important opportunity considering that standard in Austria is way more than in Serbia.
For everything I need 6000e.
Thank you for taking the time to read all this and to hear my playing.
If you are unable to donate I would appreciate if you shared my story with your friends :)
