Up until my 19th birthday I have lived in the same apartment in my hometown with my parents and my sister. Even though the 90s in the ex Yugoslavia was a turbulent time, luckily my life was stable and I knew where home was.

When I moved for the first time, I was moving on my own, leaving my family behind. I had to move 80 kilometers away to pursue my bachelor’s degree in the “big” city. …

The other person requires an exact word, that is why you search for it, you feel it lies somewhere in you, you chase it, the word or its shadow, you recognize it on the other person’s face, in other person’s look, when they start to understand.

According to famed bestselling author and media personality, Jeetendr Sehdev, shameless sells. And isn’t he right? Because if it weren’t for people being brave and brazen, and standing up to the establishment, we wouldn’t have the fight for justice we see today.
