I am originally from Bosnia and Herzegovina. This is a small country in Eastern Europe which went through some major changes in early 1990’s. I was only 7 years old when war in Bosnia started. Prior to this I had a regular childhood with two working parents and wonderful grandparents. Since at that time I was only child I got loads of attention which included plenty of talks in regards to what’s right and wrong. Both my parents and grandparents had the idea that education is really important. That was installed in me from very early on.
Few months before war started I was blessed with a little baby sister. My parent’s named her Merima. I enjoyed being a big sister it was something I wanted for a long time....
