TEDx, Youth Activism, Human Rights, and the EU
My name is Hadžera Selimović, I am 19 years old and I come from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I am a first-year Political Science and International Relations student at SSST University. Over the past seven years, I gained experience in the NGO sector through my volunteer work and participation in different projects. I volunteered at every film festival that was held in Sarajevo- Sarajevo Film Festival, Pravo Ljudski Film Festival, AJBDOC Film Festival, and Youth Film Festival in Sarajevo where I now work as Box Office Manager. I have also five years of volunteer experience at PitchWise Festival of Female Art and Activism. I am an alumna of the US Embassy’s Youth Leadership Program for young leaders held in the US in 2019. I am a member of the U.S. Embassy BOLD leaders network. Moreover, I am a TEDx Youth licensee, I am organizing the first TEDx Youth event in Bosnia and Herzegovina as a part of my BOLD small grants program. Apart from being an active volunteer and politics student, I write poetry and short literature when I want to express my deepest feelings. I heal my spirit through yoga and meditation.
