SOUTH AFRICA - SWEDEN: Introduction to Olof Palme International Center Intern at Secretariat - Tajma Sisic
Tajma Sisic started to go to political study circles when she was 16, and after a while she realised that capitalism is the main reason behind inequality, and that solidarity is very important ."Olof Palme is one of my biggest role models, he truly knew the meaning behind solidarity and why it is important. Sometimes I wish Olof Palme could visit us again, and remind us all of how important solidarity is."
"Tajma Sisic is from a small city called Karlskrona in the southern part of Sweden. She grew up in a swedish suburb with her family. She went to an elementary school close to her home, when finishing elementary she applied for a high school with political and international direction. It was in 2013 that Tajma first visited South Africa with her high school class.
After graduation Tajma moved to a city called Växjö to study political science and European studies, and this year she will get her first bachelor diploma. Tajma became politically active in the age of 16, she hates the class society and racism, so instead of just hating, she decided to get committed and do something about it.
She started to go to political study circles and after a while she realized that capitalism is the main reason behind inequality, and that solidarity is very important . From that time Tajma has organized around issues of international politics, solidarity, anti racism and social inequality.
Tajma hasn't yet worked with anything related to her studies, but since 16 years she has had part time jobs while doing her studies.
Tajma is today the youngest elected member of the local parliament council in her home town, and also the vice chairwoman of the youth league in the district of Kronoberg. She became interested of the internship at IFWEA because she wants to be a part of increasing the international labor movement."
