Tiyana Jovanovic

I’m currently in my final year of undergraduate study, doing a degree in Global Studies and a degree in Sociology/Philosophy. I’m very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work with some amazing organisation in the development sector that have allowed me to grow my skills in writing, digital media, and designing/running community campaigns. Aside from that experience, I’m also very well-traveled, having visited over 30 countries in the last 4 years since I finished high school. I am also very active on social media, where I create content about my life and my passions, including travel, veganism, social/global change, advocacy & activism, and sustainable living.
