Hi, my name is Andrija, I am 23 years old and I live in Croatia. Currently I am on the fourth year of my study at the Faculty of Political Science in Zagreb.

Since birth I have been diagnosed with cerebral paralysis and I am only moving in a wheelchair. Because of the infrastructural barriers I encounter in my everyday life, I need an assistant that allows me to overcome those barriers and grants me a greater freedom of movement.

Because of this when I need to travel I have a smaller choice of type of transportation which can increase travel costs. On longer journeys I have to travel with airplane because other transport options affect my health due to longer hours needed to get to the destination or because sometimes certain types of transportation are not fully adapted for people with disabilities. I also have a narrower choice when choosing accommodation because I need accommodation adapted for my needs.

I started this campaign to raise funds that would allow me to attend and participate in the Main Model United Nations conference, which will take place from 28th February to 3rd March in Frankfurt, Germany.
This kind of conference is intended to help students experience how it is like to be a representative of a country and that motivated me to participate. The biggest benefit I received from attending conferences is improvement of my communication skills which I need in everyday life.

Participation at conferences like this one, no matter how important they are to me, is also important for the awareness of others about the possibility of equal inclusion in decision-making process that affects the quality of everyday life.
So far, I have participated in five international conferences, among which are MEUZ, LDAMUN and MUN SALIENT, and I would be very grateful if you could help me visit the sixth conference. 

Thank you, 

Andrija Tabak
