Meet Krste Kostoski, whom you may already know from various Quick Challenges and great comments in our Weekly Hot Topic discussions. He has also recently joined our Youth Advisory Board.

Krste has a great life philosophy: "I think we don't inherit the world from our parents but we borrow it from our children, that's why we own them a better place to leave and we have to find and establish ideas that will help us make the world THAT place."

Who is Krste?

Here is what Krste told us about himself: "I come from Republic of Macedonia a small country in the Balkans. I live in a small tourist town called Ohrid. I finished vocational studies in Management at the “Chartered Management Institute” from Great Britain. Since computers were my passion, I saw the opportunity of the new University for Information Sciences and Technology that Macedonian government established in Ohrid and I enrolled in the first year of faculty again. Now I am studying Communication Networks and Security and I am Vice President of the Student Parliament of the University.

I played handball for the local team for 10 years and shortly got into the Youth National Handball Team looong time ago. Through my sport career I got the nickname "crazy" :)"

Krste is of course also a very active C:F member: "I heard about Challenge:Future trough a friend and liked the idea, because I have already been coordinator for similar project on a national level."

Haha!! Well you all know what kind of game is handball. In private life I am calm and there is nothing that can make me nervous. But i always leave that person before the game in the change room and take it back on when the game is finished :):):) Well it is the only way to play handball...otherwise you should just play volleyball or tennis :):):)
