Bosnian singles dating azdg dating in germany
Another honoree, Aftaba Mezetovic, has worked with the Winooski School District for 19 years.
Medic and Mezetovic share more than Bosnian ancestry.
She started out as a Bosnian home-school liaison in the Winooski School District.
Over time, as the number of Bosnian students dwindled and refugees from other countries began to arrive, Mezetovic's role evolved to that of an English-language learner (ELL) program assistant.
The language barrier caused occasional misunderstandings over the distribution of bread, which is a staple for Bosnian families, she said.
Over time, Hines got to know the community better — and saw it thrive.
When Mezetovic arrived in Vermont in 1995 with her two young children and husband, she was desperate for a new life, she recalled."There's not a universal experience," noted Dzeneta Karabegovic, a political scientist whose areas of focus include transitional justice in the Balkans."Each community experienced war in a different way." While the capital, Sarajevo, was under siege, Karabegovic's birthplace, Banja Luka, experienced massive expulsions and ethnic cleansing.She can't help but wonder, though, "If I had a different appearance, how would I feel?" While they may "blend in" in some respects, Bosnians have still experienced "serious challenges of integration," Bose noted.
