Julija Veljkovic – Editor in Chief

Inspired by her first contact with politics, Julija combined her passion for writing with her desire to pursue a meaningful career, resulting in a Bachelor’s of Broadcast Journalism. Long story short, Julija decided to test Melbourne’s windy wrath for a Master of International Relations. Since then she has volunteered in the non-profit sector, campaigning for human rights. As a writer, she is deeply passionate about human rights, social justice and community development.
