Hug More Interview Series - Tijana Dapčević

Not only that interviews are back, but they are back with a bang! 

She is a musician and a professor of violoncello. When needed she is a TV and radio host, as well as actress and a great cinephile. She is also a big humanist and truth ambassador. She is a founder of children singing school Univerzum. She is a wonderful human with a huge creative energy and to our delight, she is a hugger! For us, this is a great support and we are thrilled for the opportunity to ask her these questions that most certainly nobody ever asked, at least not officially : ).

Ladies and gentlemen, her name is Tijana Dapčević. \o/

WHY DO YOU LIKE HUGS? WHAT DO THEY MEAN TO YOU?

I like hugs because of their powerful ability to transmit energy in its generic way. Hugs can have many meanings but you never need an interpreter as you know exactly what they mean each time you give or receive one. You feel them because hugs just have that peace and calmness which could never be acted out.


WITH WHO DO YOU HUG THE MOST? WHO’S YOUR FAVOURITE HUGGING PARTNER?

My son and husband, definitely. My family and close friends. We have got a dog recently and whenever some of us enters the home, the greeting command for him is not “come” but constant repetition of “Hug time!” We hug a lot.


IS THERE A ONE PARTICULAR HUG THAT YOU WOULD POINT OUT AS YOUR FAVOURITE? ANY HUG SO FAR THAT STICKS OUT?

The one that happened when I was holding my son Vuk for the first time. It wasn’t just a hug with hands – I hugged him with my whole being and that hug is going to last forever. Milan and I are trying to show him every day that our hands will always be spread for him and he will always have a shelter, home and all of our love, of course.


IS THERE SOMEONE YOU OWE A HUG? SOMEONE YOU SHOULD HAVE HUGGED OR YOU WANTED TO HUG, SOMEONE WHO DESERVED A HUG BUT FOR SOME REASON YOU STILL HAVEN’T?

Nebojša Glogovac.
He was an extraordinary person and an amazing actor. A true artist.
I’ve promised him I was going to see his play - “The Hamlet” but couldn’t make it before he died and I feel really sorry because of that. I definitely owe him a hug. We all do.


IF YOU COULD PICK ANYONE, WHO WOULD YOU HUG? DEAD OR ALIVE, FICTIONAL OR REAL?

Nebojša Glogovac.


AND LASTLY, GIVE US ONE DAMN GOOD REASON WHY WE SHOULD ALL HUG MORE?

We should hug more because hugs are magical. And who doesn’t like magic? :)
The world would become much safer and happier place if we hugged more.
Nothing comes by default, especially not love and appreciation. Show your love every day and hug someone every day. Each and every hug is equally important. Love is important.
