My name is Ana Penca and I live in a small town in the region of Dolenjska. As the oldest child in the family, I often find myself in the role of the “peace activist” and the “commander” Štefka :). I adore the sea on sunny days, autumn nights by the fire and winter days in the snow. I enjoy making my own music and singing. As far as I can remember, I strive for equality and I try to act righteously. In my opinion, people act different than it is in their nature because of their fear of unknown. This is why I think that curiosity, courage (to approach someone) and conversation are crucial for us to understand each other. I am delighted to be a part of our mosaic of world culture and that I have a chance to research, in detail, the country that I represent in this year.
