"Tode Nikoletić wrote the text, Ognjan Cvekić signs the arrangement, and Dijana Bogićević composed the music," explains Dora. Montenegrin composers and children's pedagogues Frenki and Dijana Bogićević are her teachers of singing since the beginnings of music engagement, and Dora owes them the most gratitude for the successes she has gained since 2014.

Calls are coming all the time and from the other parts of Montenegro.

The songs "Babaroga," “Najljepši san“ ("The Most Beautiful Dream"), “Dobrodošlica“ ("Welcome"), “Čik pogodi“ ("Guess if You Can“), "Ljuboples" have made Dora Stampić very popular among peers. She does not personally think that she is special and important because she recognized her talents. She says that all children can be successful in what they like if they are lucky enough to recognize and support their talents. She remembers that her music story was initially attributed to Ružica Lazarević, now Director of the Elementary School Drago Milović. Dora was a trainee of her School for talents, and thanks to her started Dora's cooperation with Dijana and Frenki Bogićević, where her first song "Babaroga" was born.
 
"It is early to know what I will deal with when I grow up. For now, I enjoy singing and socializing and traveling that music is bringing to me. At the moment I think that when I grow up, I would like to be an actress. That profession includes many things I enjoy, " says Dora Štampić, who was on the scene for the first time with just three years, as the youngest majorette dancer of the Fashion-dance Club "Modest" from Tivat.
