I was born in former Yugoslavia , present day Bosnia & Herzegovina, but I grew up in the Netherlands. After finishing high school, I studied Slavonic and Eastern European Studies at KU Leuven, followed by an MA in European Studies at the University of Amsterdam. During my teenage years. I focused intensely on improving and eventually perfecting my native tongue,
doing so by reading, writing and also translating. Two of my translations have been published in different literary magazines and I am also currently
working on the translation of two books from Serbian/ Croatian to Dutch.
