With the colours of EIO she has had many successes, such as winning the gold at the Children's Championship, while in four years in the Juniors she was always among the champions. She has also won 1st place in the Nationals and has represented our country both in the Children’s and Adolescents’ categories in the Balkan and European Championships.
