I've been a community builder since my high school days. I'm also passionate about diasporas and the positive impact they can have on their countries of origin. These two passions led me first to create the "Young Diaspora of Bosnia and Herzegovina" connecting hundreds of young Bosnians worldwiede, and then "Italians in DC" connecting Italians in Washington, DC. In 2013 I joined the World Bank Group (WBG) as a consultant with the Latin America and Caribbean region. There I used video-interviews as a tool to record and share practical knowlegde on social inclusion. I also developed and managed the communications strategy for the amazing "KingstOOn" animation festival and conference, the first of its kind in Jamaica. My present job is to help the WBG develop communities of practice that are valuable to their members and to the organization. Previously I worked for a Washington, DC PR firm. I hold a Masterâ€™s degree in International Affairs from the Johns Hopkins University SAIS. Born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, I was raised in Bologna, Italy.
