Born in 1995, Lara Potočnik continues her studies in Latin Philology and Comparative Linguistics and writing her Master's thesis to become a literary translator and etymologist in Ljubljana. During her studying in Ljubljana, Vienna, Brașov and Iași, she studied several Indo-European languages and developed a particular interest in the evolution of Romance languages, which apart from traveling to Romania and attending courses of Romanian language, inspired her to start learning about and translating Romanian literature.
