President of the Visiting Committee for Diplomatic Representatives
Sanja Petrović was born and raised in Belgrade, where she graduated from the Ninth Grammar High School “Mihailo Petrović Alas.” Even with her great interest in natural sciences, love for languages and diplomacy prevailed, and she enrolled at the Faculty of Law of the University of Belgrade, where she is now a successful third year student of international law. She joined the club during her first year, participating in many of its activities, taking the most interest in the Board for Diplomatic Visits, whose president she became in 2019. One of the main extra-curricular interests during her student life is Model United Nations, at many of which she was either a delegate, Chairperson or an Organizing Team member, in Belgrade and Europe, also winning the Best Delegate Award. For two years in a row, she participated in the organization of the Belgrade International Model United Nations (BIMUN), where she was also a Chairperson of the Human Rights Council. In addition, she is an associate of the United Nations Association of Serbia and participates in many projects it organizes (Dialogue café, BIMUN Plus, etc.). In September 2018, she had the opportunity to take part in the organization of the visit by the Indian Vice President to Serbia, when she was the liaison officer for the Indian Minister of State for Finance. With a communicative and open nature, comes love for languages. She speaks English and German and has basic knowledge of Spanish. In addition to improving language and communication skills, her leisure time is spent in her travels, cooking (equally avidly as trying out new and interesting culinary specialties) and exploring the culture of the places she visits. She considers activism and education of young people in the fields of sustainable development, politics and international and local conferences to be one of the most important and powerful ways to provide a voice and continuous progress to their generation, with the idea that energy rightly applied can accomplish anything.
