I am a Chartered Civil Engineer and have a lot of experience in various fields of civil engineering. Knowledge and practice in the field are constantly changing. That is why I am a constant learner. "The more I learn, the more I realize that there's still so much more to learn."

Even though Lada's native language is Croatian, she started learning English in elementary school. Apart from English, Lada also learned Italian at a later age. Foreign languages became a part of her daily life and even more so after joining聽beBee. Lada's writing skills in English are excellent, which you will find several of her contributions聽included in this post.

"So, for whom am I writing?
For the time being, I write about what鈥檚 in my mind and heart and find a great joy in it. Some might say I write for myself. But what鈥檚 the difference between writing for yourself and for someone else? 聽No matter how personal my story is, others can find themselves in it.
Writing for myself I write for those who feel the same. I hope I鈥檒l find those people and they would become my audience."Lada Prkic

If you ever make a trip to Croatia, look for the licitars and give them to someone special. When given from the heart, no matter how small token of appreciation will bring joy to those you love.聽 Licitars: Hearts made of honey

well, the upside is Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic, which made me alarmed until the tributee shown up. #21 I'd LOVE to be more consistant - being a 'lady of the night' is frankly knackering :) One day....... Accept this well-deserved tribute, Pearl - they are as rare as you!

Pascal, you are right! Many Bees are hyperactive but after a while disappear without a trace. On the contrary, I am discreet and persistent. As a proverb goes: "Still waters run deep." :)

you may not like it, but you do look good in the spotlights and nothing wrong with that Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic, you still are the same, only that now the sun shines on you and cooperates with you to shine together

Dear Liesbeth, actually I don't like being in the spotlight.:) The true hero is our Franci who is tireless in promoting beBee and engaging with users, particularly NewBees. I think that for a change she deserves to be put in the spotlight for all the light and love she spreads, as you beautifully said. Maybe an interview with our Gert Scholtz. :))

Franci, thank you so much for this lovely dedication. Like our friend Debasish would say, I feel honoured and privileged. Also, thanks for including my geographical background in this post. There are still people who are not familiar with this part of Europe, although my country is near Italy. Both countries are separated by the Adriatic sea. The writer in me woke up more than two years ago just on beBee and still awake, I hope forever. :)

The article titled "Geometry, All Around Us" by Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic, mentioned in this post is in some respects her masterpiece in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) communication and also a must read.
