I am a corporate communications consultant, writer, blogger, poet, and native speaker of Serbian, English and Portuguese. A Serbian native, I was born and raised on the Iberian Peninsula, with some time spent in the Middle East and U.S.. When I am not dedicating my time to Global Voices, I play a part-time adult as a mom of two and CEO of Krazy Fish Consulting. In the free time I don't have but manage to find, I listen and share on Twitter and other social networks as NikiBGD.
