The idea of ISWiB promoters came from the desire of the former participants of the Festival to get involved in its organization. The red color is reserved for them! They are communicative and friendly, but also responsible young people who are passionate about ISWiB, and want to help spreading our spirit and voice in their countries. Their role is to promote World Youth Wave as organization and ISWiB as a project on a daily basis. Thanks to them, our future participants will have someone in their country who is there to help if they have any difficulties. Because they are so valuable to the whole project, best of them might get a chance to be completely free of partcipation fee. If you recognize yourself among these qualities this is the right place for you!
Ambassadors are former ISWiB promoters who have decided to spend their time representing World Youth Wave organisation and its main project, ISWiB. They are often the first person potential participants gets in touch with, so it is their job to share all needed information with them and motivate and encourage them to apply. Alongside helping the participants, Ambassadors are helping ORG team members by: giving them useful advice on how to improve ISWiB and point out something that ORG team members might have overseen, forwarding participants’ experiences and impressions. Since Ambassadors have experience in promoting the festival, their job also includes helping new promoters in fulfilling their tasks. ISWiB family continues to grow!

Originally from Tivat, Montenegro, she adopted Belgrade as a second home during her B.A. studies, where she contributed to the magic of ISWiB 2017 as a group guide. Ljubica is a zealous bibliophile, whose prince on a white horse would know that what a girl mostly wants is – a library the size of a football pitch. In this dream scenario, the regal title would be thrown to the wind and the horse loved to death, since Ljubica is annoyingly fond of dogs, horses and penguins. Her enthusiasm for cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue is infectious, which is why she was a proud ambassador of ISFiT. She is passionate about gender dynamics, informal education, foreign languages, and as of recently – walnut ice-cream.

My name is Margarita, I`m from Russia. I adore ISWiB and it is a great honor for me to become a promoter this year. To my mind, the world we live in is amazing and incredible despite all its flaws. Staying curious and using imagination as our greatest power, we can make it better. I think that every person is a director of their own movie. It’s up to you whether you turn your movie into a breathtaking adventure or not. However, I believe that you need to stay strong and make every shot great even if the tape is broken, the actors seem fake and the script is weird sometimes. There is an inspiring quote by Leo Burnett that always lights my way. "When you reach for the stars, you might not quite get one, but you won`t come up with a handful of mud either."

Rafaela Samara was born in 1992 in Thessaloniki, the second biggest city of Greece and the most romantic one as people say. Electronic Engineering is her field of studies but that is not what she loves the most. Her soul fulfils by travelling, singing, learning new languages and of course making new friends. Back in 2013, she was an Erasmus student in Dresden, an amazing and super international city in Germany. During her Erasmus, she realized that international relationships is the field that interests her the most. That was the main reason why she participated in many international festivals and workshops, such as GrIStuF, ISWI, ISWiB, ISWinT and WFYS. If she had to describe herself in a couple of words, those would be: adventurer, positive thinker, romantic, cheerful, lifetime learner. Her life\’s moto is: "Everything happens for a reason".
