Selma Jasencic is a refugee from the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Her parents decided to leave the war-ridden country when she was just a child to give their daughter a better life.
At the time, she didn’t have a full grasp of the complexities of war, but now as a political science major, she is determined to go back and make a difference.
The war is no longer and Jasencic wishes to return to Bosnia and help the country regain its footing. She wants nothing more than to go back and teach English to the people of Bosnia so they can come to America with a full command of the language while searching for the same opportunities she was given.
Watch her story above and come back Dec. 4 for a longer documentary featuring Jasencic.
