Tea Tkalčević is a 29-year-old from Croatia and CEO of speech – therapy private practice Pričalice that went viral in the Balkans and is bringing together education, health, and technology. She is changing the game by providing free therapies to socially disadvantaged families, STEM workshop and the main goal is to create an app and pair it with the VR system so children can learn through play.
The idea is to make speech therapy global. She defines success in voltage of smiles, kilograms of eaten jellybeans, liters of sweat dedicated to her job, pairs of lost socks, and miles of peaceful sleep. There is always the responsibility and work ethics included, and stability is important in every part of someones life (family, financial, social relationship…), however, it is more important to appreciate hugs, support and hers hedgehog mental state. Otherwise, you get either bitten or bitter.
She stepped on some stones along the way since not everyone are prone to changes, but she overcome and left them behind as easy as learning how to sing in tune, mostly with a help of Humanity First Croatia. It is currently possible to participate by donating or investing in therapies, STEM workshops, application development or by donating for vehicle.
