Marinella Matejcic · January, 2015

I am a freelance writer and journalist from Croatia. My point of interest is feminism, politics, SRHR and positively driven activism. I'm one of 200 Young Leaders involved in Women Deliver's Young Leaders Program. My work is a fusion of on-line media, old-fashioned activism and social networks. When I'm not writing, organising events (small, voluntarily driven street art meets) or doing some form of activism, I'm living a full life with my family, dogs, fishes and friends.
