Jožica Back from Radovljica
Something drew her
After divorcing her husband, Jožica Back was left on her own with her daughter: no apartment, no job, and unqualified. She had had completed six years of primary school. One day she was passing the Folk High School in Radovljica and in her own words, something drew her to go inside. According to the directress of the Folk High School, she was an example to other students because of her strong motivation. She passed all her examinations early, although in all the years she did not get a single day off work for her education. She completed primary school and vocational school, and is now considering going for a secondary education. The feeling that she knows something gives her self-confidence.
