Marija's inspirations

Who is someone that inspires you?

I draw inspiration from everywhere depending on where I am in my own journey. At times, I find inspiration from close friends, family, and, members of my community, while at other times I am inspired by world leaders in their respective fields.

Why do you want to complete the Kokoda Trek?

The Kokoda Trek embodies not only historical significance but also personal challenge. My family's immigration from Yugoslavia in 1997 occurred during a period of war, during which many of our relatives, including my father, served. This shared history adds layers of meaning to the trek's journey, intertwining our personal experiences with broader historical narratives. Kokoda has been on my bucket list for quite some time, and Now is as good a time as any!

What do you hope to get out of completing the trek?

Personal growth and reflection, I believe the physical and mental challenges of Kokoda will cultivate a greater appreciation for life around me.
