International Forestry Students’ Association, DE
President of The International Forestry Students’ Association, focusing on global youth engagement regarding forestry and related sciences
My name is Dolores Pavlovic. I’m the current President of the International Forestry Students’ Association, an association run by students, for students. My passion for forests stems from my childhood. I grew up in British Columbia where every free moment was spent exploring and getting very lost in the great outdoors. When I was 15, I moved to Serbia which had a tremendous impact on my life. I knew that there is no single approach to landscape management which is what motivated me to pursue an international career. To break formality, I am also black belt in Tae Kwon Do and used to work as an instructor.
