Aida Knežević is a final year student of translation and interpretation at the University of Sarajevo. She was born near Brčko, grew up in Tuzla, but calls Sarajevo home for now. As a high school student she spent one year on exchange in the US with the YES program, and as a Masters student spent a semester in Split through Erasmus. In 2015, she started actively participating in LGBT and feminist movements in BiH by creating pieces of clothing with political statements. By day she is a translator and ESL teacher; by night, she is one half of the audiovisual project Sestre, which tackles nationalism, militarism, homophobia, misogyny, and neoliberalism in BiH society.
