Before joining BIRN Hub, Aida was a long-term associate of the Sarajevo Open Center, as an author of articles and infographics dealing with the problems and needs that LGBTI people and other marginalized social groups in Bosnia face every day. She also worked as an author of articles for Balkansmedia.org, which supports media independence and freedom of expression in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, North Macedonia, and Serbia. Covering new tools and various techniques that journalists can use in their everyday work, the aim of the articles was to raise the quality of media content and build the competencies of journalists.
Aida gained diverse and long working experience in several non-governmental organizations, working on projects related to cultural and creative industries, strengthening local self-government, and projects related to culture and art. For two-and-a half years she worked in Gallery 11/07/95 as a curator, where she had an opportunity to professionally explore and enhance the possibilities of museums’ educational function, which is one of her passions.
Aida graduated in Art history and Pedagogy from the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Sarajevo. She is currently studying New Media Design at the ITAcademy, International School for Education and Informatics.
Besides BHS languages, she is fluent in English.
