Writer. Journalist. Translator. English
Language Teacher. World citizen.
When people ask me to define myself, I always say I’m a nostalgic Serbian expat living in Italy for 19 years and Trentina (a citizen of Trentino Alto Adige) by adoption.
Upon a graduation in International relations in 2005 I decided to follow my dreams and passion and what I once considered just a childhood hobby, it became all of a sudden reality. In the autumn of 2009, when my first novel Balkanski virus (The Balkan virus) was published in Serbia, it was one of the most important events of my life.
I've always thought my career would be strictly connected to my studies. I never considered, not even in my craziest dreams (or better nightmares), being a full time novelist or journalist. Until one day I got a proposal to collaborate with one lifestyle magazine in Serbia ... the rest is history! Since then I worked for various Serbian, Italian and US print and web media.
It was never in my plans to make a living of writing, but sometimes, people call it destiny, things just happen. I’ve learned a lot from each experience and I am looking forward to learn even more in future. We are all lifetime learners, aren’t we?
