Marija’s activism started in high school with the fight against gender-based violence. She became a peer educator on sexual and reproductive health and rights. Her study of Sociology opened the doors for diverse engagements from self-organised collectives, to feminist philanthropy. She was recognised as one of the most socially and politically engaged students in Serbia in 2012. After obtaining a Master in Sociology, she has worked in a number of roles and with a wide range of marginalised groups including young people, activists, women’s collectives and women’s funds. In her work she connects gender, social, economic and environmental justice.
