Print page

Stefan Bogdanovic is a real hero.  

Stefan was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2004. Because of his diagnosis, Stefan had to leave school and give up football, his biggest passion.

Stefan first learned about ECDL certification at the Children’s Cancer Help Institution in Vienna, Austria so he decided to dive right in and with great success.

After Stefan gained his ECDL certification, he wanted to give something back to the community. He decided to take the ECDL Advanced test. After he successfully passed his exam, Stefan became an ECDL trainer at the Children’s Cancer Help Institution in Vienna.

Stefan Bogdanovic said: ‘’For the first time after I was diagnosed with a cancer, I found ECDL as something I could hold on to and something that could give me a better hope for the future. It had certainly been one of the best decisions of my life to become ECDL certified!”

Stefan was awarded the global ECDL / ICDL: A Brighter Future winner at the ECDL Foundation Awards in Barcelona, Spain on 18th October 2007. The award was presented in recognition of his personal achievement in attaining the ECDL certification in difficult personal circumstances.
