I was born in the Zvezdara Municipality of Belgrade, then Yugoslavia. Two years later, just as my native country was getting ready to topple the government of Slobodan Milosevic, I was whisked away by my parents to Gaborone, Botswana.
I spent the next seven years, perhaps the most formative, in Gaborone and Maun. By the time I returned to my native country, it was no longer Yugoslavia. In this new iteration of Serbia, I had to relearn my first native language and rediscover my roots.
Eventually, this turned into a fascination with all things cultural and anthropological. All of which, I hope, someday will lead to a career spent traveling – or organizing artefacts in a dusty museum basement somewhere in the world.
In the meantime, I’m a full-time uni student and travel as much as I can with my wonderfully weird, polylingual, mixed-culture adopted family. Culture Kink is where I tell you all about it.
