Miss Earth Serbia 2017

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD)
I had a wonderful childhood thanks to my lovely parents. They have been always there for me and my two sisters and brother. We have a big family so I was surrounded by love and support since my early age. I grew up in a small part of the city, in a street full of children running and playing all the time, after my kindergarten I started going in the same school with them, so we were very close from the beginning. At age 11 I travelled with my family to Egypt and we saw pyramids and ride camels . It was the best vacation I remembered. I still want to go back and be a kid for a few years more.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
Maybe the special fact about my family is that I'm the oldest (18), i have two sisters - Andreja (16) and Natalija (11), and our brother was born 3 years ago when my mother had 45 years, so he is still our little baby and probably always will be. All three of us are like mothers to him.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
When I applied for Miss Serbia competition.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF THE COUNTRY YOU ARE REPRESENTING?
My country even if it's small it's still very beautiful. We have gorgeous landscapes, rivers, lakes, mountains, national parks. I love our climate because we have all four seasons so we can enjoy in summer days but also in snow when it's winter. Serbia have lots of successful sportiest like Novak Djokovic (one of the best tennis players in the world), man and women volleyball teams, water polo team, we have many amazing people that changed the world like Nikola Tesla (electricity inventor), Mihajlo Pupin (Telegraphic or Telephonic Transmission) , Ivo Andric (writer Nobel Prize Winner and many others . Serbia also has 5 national parks and endangered species of plants and animals, and some of them exist only in Serbia.

WHAT TRIVIA ABOUT YOURSELF WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
Before all, I need to say that I am so excited for Miss Earth and to go in Philippines and meet in person all the amazing people that are supporting me all the way. Can't wait to experience all the beauty of your country. I love to travel, meet new people and get to know their culture, language, of course visit all the monuments and explore the beauty of their environment. Thank you for this amazing opportunity to compete in this such an important competition.
