Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My life is a constant struggle between trying to look good and
eating a whole pizza.
I was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina, in the now-defunct
former Yugoslavia. Bonus points if you know a thing or two about

biggest nerd in my family (by the way, I'm damn proud of them

Sense of humor
My fingers. We may not be best friends, but I can always count on
them. My middle finger in particular has always stuck up for me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I maybe sort of thought the opening sequence of "Up" was really
cute and I had some major goosebumps.
