Today’s guest is young, talented and inspiring Maja Krištafor. She is an activist, journalist, freelancer, social media manager, and so much more.
She will tell us more about what it means to be an activist in the digital age.
Who is she?
She calls herself “an activist in the making” while raising awareness about problems that the younger generations are facing, organising workshops, projects and fights for equality among young people in her community.
From a young age, she was a person with a wide range of interests, ambitions and desires. Maja first studied biotechnology in Rijeka, where she volunteered on numerous projects and became the Student Association of Biotechnology president. In the meantime, she became a national coordinator of the conference, different events and radio co-host.
Soon realised that her path will lead her in a different direction, where she moved to Zagreb, starting her life from scratch. She dived in the marketing PR waters as a social media manager and a field journalist.
We’ve talked about what makes her life so compelling and what are her passions in life:
- what does it mean to be an activist,
- her experience as a journalist in times of COVID-19,
- how is she using digital media to raise awareness for problems in today’s society?
How would she describe an activist in three words?
“An activist is ambitious, thick-skinned and willing to take action fast.” – Maja K.
