My name is Rialda Spahic and I was a bachelor and master student of Computer science and engineering at the International University of Sarajevo. Right now, I live and work in Norway at one of the world’s greatest energy companies as an IT Analyst.
I'm one of those people who knew from an early age what I want to be when I grow up. For as long as I can remember I was always fascinated with architectural design, especially interior architecture.
My co-workers often ask me why I chose to study in Bosnia rather than graduating from one of the many universities here in Turkey. It all started with the hijab ban, which as a young Muslim woman, affected my life drastically.
I always knew I would study English language and literature, but I never knew that this choice would lead me to where I am today: living abroad and working as an English teacher in Istanbul, Turkey.
