Dimitrije Prokopović





My name is Dimitrije Prokopović, I am from Leskovac and I am a 25-year old senior year Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Niš, Serbia.

As one good politician from Serbia once said: “None of us are as good as we could be if we tried harder.” I think the same, and I am continuously trying to go another step forward each day, forward to a better future. I think that in the 21st century most valuable are ideas, time and contacts since we live in times of a global environmental crisis, in time of a global covid pandemic and since both of them are leading to yet another economic crisis I believe that we need to connect and share our ideas so that we can overcome it all asap. That is why two years ago, in 2019, I started being active in the field of Youth activism. I have been volunteering in the international non-profit student organisation – Erasmus Student Network (ESN) at local level, I have also participated in some of the local EU events as a volunteer and I truly believe that we can be stronger together and united in diversity.

In my free time, I like to read books, one of my favorite ones is “1984” by George Orwell, I also like watching movies, spending time in nature while hiking, I love meeting new people and having long and good quality conversations. Even though I study mechanical engineering, political science, human rights and freedom of speech are also some of my big passions. As Oscar Wilde would say: “To define is to limit.”
