My name is Nevena Rackovic and I come from Serbia, I have a 2 and a half year old daughter, I love living in Dubai because of the sunshine and its beaches. I have been working at Rainbow Valley Nursery for the last 4 years and I have truly enjoyed it as we have an amazing team that respects and helps each other. Being an expat sometimes can be lonely but having a nice team at work helps as It feels like having family around.
I have studied to be a Pharmaceutical technician. The skills that I have learnt whilst studying this course have been put to use whilst working with children.
I am also an undergraduate physiotherapist. I have practiced in different children’s clinics and this have proven to be an essential part of my curriculum, which gives me unique experience when it comes to working with children.
I can play the flute and I am a very creative person and I enjoy teaching children. I did gymnastics for 4 years and this has helped me to develop my organizational skills as well as my team spirit.
Whilst volunteering for Red Crescent, I was able to develop my organization skills and efficiency further. In Red Crescent, I assisted in organizing and carrying out various events. Whilst working in a multicultural team, I have learnt to be tolerant and flexible and respect the views and cultures of others.
