I was born in 1989 in Karlovac, Croatia. I have been living in my hometown, Indjija, Serbia, since 1995, and that is also where I finished my primary education. Upon finishing my secondary education at the Sremski Karlovci Gymnasium, I enrolled at the Novi Sad Faculty of Philosophy. I got my BA degree in English language and linguistics in 2012, and my MA in the same field in 2013. I am currently a first year student of PhD studies in linguistics at the same university.
I am a freelance translator, English teacher and blogger/writer. Translating TED talks is one of my favorite pastimes and the crucial thing that started my addiction to the amazing world of TED. I have managed to connect the usefulness of translating with the joy of finding out about new and fascinating ideas and people which grace the stages of TED events.
In my free time I like to read, investigate and attempt to further improve myself both in my professional life, as well as a human being.

My TED story
I started translating TED talks to Serbian in February 2013. I quickly realized how fun and enlightening the talks can be. I was introduced to the wonderful TED translators' community, both in my country and internationally. Translating quickly became one of my favorite things to do in idle moments and I have translated and reviewed hundreds of talks to my native language.
In September 2013, I attended the first Balkan regional TED OTP workshop and met the wonderful people who are the soul of this community.
In November 2013, I was chosen as a language coordinator for Serbian. In December that same year, I was chosen as one of the 15 translators to attend TEDActive 2014.
