Biography

I am an experienced chairperson with a demonstrated history of working in the entertainment industry, culture and event management, public speaking, organizational leadership, and public relations. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and International Relations from the University of Buckingham. I was the only person from Bosnia who was included in Madonna’s ‘Art for Freedom’ project and collaborated in cultural projects with individuals such as Professor Ivo Josipović, the former president of Croatia. More than 10,000 individuals in my local community have seen my performances, events, plays, and exhibitions. I was the only young person from Bosnia and Herzegovina who was interviewed by Newsweek magazine for a discussion on arts, youth activism, and the potential of Balkan youth through culture. The project ‘Ex Files Maglaj’ which I founded with friends was of fundamental importance with regard to the archiving of surviving photographs and belongings following the Bosnian floods of 2014. The exhibition features the city’s places of interest and its forgotten locations, which are now regionally recognised, and have received over 7000’live’ visits in exhibition spaces and more than 1,000,000 ‘clicks.’ Lastly, many youths interested in culture and education have had the opportunity to work on interesting regional projects through the organisation ‘Dictum Factum,’ of which I am the chairman.
