Dear principal of Toppen school, My name is Dejana Paunović and I am a 4th grade student in the grammar school ‘’Takovski ustanak’’ in Gornji Milanovac. I managed to learn a lot about your school, thanks to a couple of my friends who have already spent a school year in Mosjøen and all they could say for Toppen are the words of praise. I really liked the concept of your education and the programs that you offer. I was thrilled with a fact that your school is multicultural and liberal. The possibility to build yourself up, but also to be an equal part of a group was quite exciting for me. Aleksandra Božović and Jovan Tomić, who are in Toppen at the moment, shared the precise information about the course ‘’Nettserie og film’’ which I am very interested in. I have been in contact with a movie world since my childhood. I grew up with Disney animations and fantasy in general. I have always been attracted to fantastic stories and movies with a lot of special effects. I am curious to find out more about the usage of the chroma keying, cameras and assembly programming. I believe that this might be an ideal opportunity to get to know more about the course itself and the available techniques of the film production.

My overall experience started in the elementary school when I did a drama course. I tried a little bit of acting and

achieved an award for the best female role at the ‘’School Scene’’ contest. I have continued with these activities in high school as well. There have been several projects connected to drama art, but my roles have been different. We have made a short movie based on story ‘’Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy’’ by Daglas Adams. On the occasion of 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare, a friend from my class wrote a script named ‘’ On Shakespeare’s Deathbed’’ based on which we made the film. Within the same topic, we held lectures on Shakespeare’s life and work in elementary schools in our town. This project gave me the opportunity to meet theatre director Nikita Milivojević and Rhiannon Hughes, director of the film festival ‘’Wicked Wales’’. As a part of the festival programme, dedicated to the creation of Roald Dahl in the film, I also wrote an essay that was published on the official site of the Welsh Film Festival.

In order to get some experience, I participated in some film workshops that were available here,

in my town, as well as in other places. I took part in the following workshops: ‘’How to write a scenario’’ workshop, ‘’Sound in a film’’ workshop, ‘’3D photography and camera’’ workshop... Due to my engagement, I got an opportunity to participate in the 3rd Short Form Film Festival, organized by the Cultural Centre Gornji Milanovac. I did the translation of films from different parts of the world. I also translated the entire subtitles as well as he synopsis for the official website of the Short Form Film Festival. Next year, I was invited to be a member of the Youth Jury at the 4th Short Form Film Festival. It was quite challenging since there were more than 240 films, out of which the top five from various categories had to be determined. The experience has helped me to get to know the different creative techniques and expressive forms that were used by artist in their movies and animations.

I would like to mention volunteering for the AFS organisation dealing with student exchanges.

The volunteerig has given me the opportunities to meet many wonderful people and find out different lifestyles around the world. I was a part of three class exchanges. I spent 7 days in the south of Italy and visited Slovenj Gradec in Slovenia twice, where I also participated in many interesting workshops. Working with a girl from Thailand, who spent a year in my class as an exchange student, we made a video that summarizes our experience with the Italian students. Also, at the beginning of every school year, I make workshops for 1st grade students related to intercultural learning and exchange programs offered by AFS. I have held the presentation on this topic in some cities in Serbia, Italy and when students from Norway visited our school. Based on my eager work, I got the opportunity to represent Serbia, national AFS office and my city at EFIL’s seminar ‘’ Intercultural learning for all’’ in Budapest in March 2017. I spent 7 days there and learnt a lot of things. All this represents the unforgettable experience and makes friends for a life. Maybe my volunteering has nothing to do with the course I want to study in your school, but it opens up a chance to learn a lot more about your culture and perfect my language which I started learning on my own. I also study Italian and I speak English fluently. My knowledge of English has improved through contacts with people from all over the world, as well as my school program which is in English.

My interests are versatile. In my free time I like to read, draw and spend time in nature with

friends. I even went to a local music school for a while where I learnt to play the violin. I have been training volleyball for 10 years and now I go to gym and ride a bike. I like to explore diverse cultures and I hope that in my life I will have the possibility to visit numerous countries. I believe that my staying in Norway will bring me many new friends, improve my knowledge and be memorable part of my life. I hope you will recognize me as a suitable candidate for your school. With my creativity and desire to study, I am sure that I will be able to perform well there and make a significant contribution. Thank you very much for considering my application. I look forward to your positive response.

Yours sincerely,

Dejana Paunović

To Whom It May Concern It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Dejana Paunović, a fourth-year student at Grammar School “Takovski ustanak”, Gornji Milanovac. I am an English teacher, pedagogical advisor, international cooperation coordinator and AFS mentor and volunteer at Grammar School “Takovski ustanak” Gornji Milanovac, Serbia. Dejana has been my student for four years and during this period, she has actively and enthusiastically participated both in our English lessons and all the activities and projects that I have organized. She has participated in the projects that I have implemented in cooperation with the Cultural Centre Gornji Milanovac. The projects were related to media education and young film-makers education within the Youth Cinema Network Projects. She demonstrated impressive lecturing and organizational skills while participating in the peer teaching projects such as the presentation of Shakespeare’s life and works to young learners, the presentation of our school and country to the foreign partners from Italy, Slovenia and Norway and the “Interkultura” education for young volunteers. Her creativity and passion for the English language and literature can be illustrated with her amazing presentation of Shakespeare’s narrative poems and a great role in the film “On Shakespeare’s Deathbed”, created by her classmates. She also participated in the cooperation with our Welsh partners related to the life and works of Rolad Dahl. Her role was really important in the organization of the public reading (Shakespeare, Joyce) in cooperation with the local library. As a participant of the exchange with the partners from Italy, she was an exceptional representative of our school, eager to meet new people, learn about different culture and customs and always ready to present our tradition and values in a remarkable way. As my student who has attended my lessons, participated in various extracurricular activities, exchanges and projects that I have organized during the last four years, she has been able to convince me that she is hard-working, knowledgeable and skillful. She proved to be a person with a willingness to work hard and ambition for self-improvement, specialization and further development. The results that convince me of her competences are successfully completed tasks, active participation in projects, as well as the fact that she excelled at the implementation of her creativity and organizational skills. She is an open-minded girl who is quite prone to informal learning, gaining new experience and knowledge and improving her social skills. I am convinced that Dejana Paunović is an outstanding candidate for the program that you offer. If we take into consideration her work and creativity, I strongly believe that she can come up to your requirements and make a great contribution to your program. In my opinion, this would be a great and useful opportunity for her to enhance her knowledge and talent in a highly developed country and therefore she will be able to achieve better results in her future education and career. Please feel free to contact me if you require any further information. Dragana Stefanoviċ Email address: bilingualgimgm@gmail.com ‘
