About herself she says:
"I am the offspring of two of the most radically different people, but I ended up being a happy little Balkan cocktail. Born to a fully Montenegrin hard-working, don’t-mess-with, kind of mother, who blindly believes in me, as well as a half-Serbian, half-Croatian, modern, rock-star of a father, who has taught me how to be a rational and logical thinking person.
Up until the age of 5 I thought my name was 'Don’t...' "
