My name is Ursula Majcen. I am not an Olympian, but I am an athlete, in soul and in lifestyle. Passionate, heartfelt, persistent, always in search of something new. That’s how many people described me, and yes, I admit, that’s how I am, a “long-distance marathon runner.” Not long ago, she was a radio and television presenter, editor, journalist, reporter, also organizer, mentor, and a university graduate economist specializing in organization and management.
My love for sports and harmonious relationships took me into the world of communication and performance. More than 25 years of work, experience and knowledge behind a radio microphone, in front of a TV camera, in front of crowds of public event attendees, in the company of people from all winds, even as an air flight attendant, give me wings to continue my mission and encourage and encourage people to a varied and healthy lifestyle.
I want people to feel good. I want us to create and direct together with good stories and contribute to the positive mood of the whole society. And let’s not forget how exercise is also an important part of health care.
I am aware that not only the medium but every human being can have great social influence and great reach, but they also have a responsibility. That is why I take on the role of inspiring people, encouraging them, advising them and, last but not least, instilling more hope for the future. We can also maintain this passion together by sharing good news or stories and not by pointing out excesses, dramas and tragedies.
I “take” you into the world of storytelling
Wondering if I still run events, events, press conferences… With pleasure, because the greatest pleasure is to do what makes you happy. And I want to pass this experience on to you as well. In sports circles, I still hear how difficult it is for some great athlete to go in front of reporters after the match and give them a statement. Fear and trepidation are completely unnecessary. I’m here for you.
I take care of your reputation and a successful public appearance
One of my guidelines is also: “If you don’t have time to relax and exercise, then you don’t care about your health.” I know that not every form of exercise is for everyone, but everyone can find a physical activity that makes them feel good and recharge. energy battery. Many times, however, only a beautiful thought that you dedicate to a fellow human being or only to yourself helps.
And not to forget. In a relationship, we are always just human to human, and respect is a form of admiration that can be spiced up by a sound greeting card on special occasions or just like that, for a better day.
The late Professor Drago Ulaga and Stane Urek, my predecessors in the Slovenian sports recreation area, would certainly support me in this work. I believe that we have a huge number of like-minded people who know and want to keep a healthy mind in a healthy body or, in my opinion, a magnet on the wings of the heart, which also attracts all those who are not yet active in sports. Well, you know, for a slight shift, positive energy and the feeling that a person can do a lot with small steps is enough.
