TEDx, Youth Activism, Human Rights, and the EU


I study Political Science and International Relations at the Sarajevo School of Science and Technology (SSST)/University of Buckingham in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Since the age of 12, I have volunteered and worked on youth activism projects in my country and abroad. I am a former volunteer coordinator with seven years of experience at festivals in Sarajevo, including PitchWise Festival, Sarajevo Film Festival, Pravo Ljudski Film Festival, Aljazeera Balkans Film Festival and Youth Film Festival. I am the Head of the Enter Student Club at the SSST. In 2019, I participated in the Youth Leadership Program in Dayton, OH, USA, organised by the US Embassy in Sarajevo. Additionally, in 2019 I became a fellow of the BOLD Leaders network in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Moreover, in 2020, I won a grant from the US Embassy to implement a civic engagement project. I have also been a TED-licensee since 2020 and was the founder and organiser of the first TEDxYouth event in south-east Europe, TEDxYouth@Ferhadija. In August 2021, I became an alumna of the Summer School for Refugee Rights and Migration organised by the UNHCR. As of August 2021, I have been a part of Chatham House’s Common Futures Conversations project. In October 2021, I spoke at the UNESCO SEE Regional Conference ‘Media and Information Literacy for Public Good’.
