Cultural diversity and all things international were important to Amila from a young age, as she is the daughter of Bosnian immigrants and was born in Germany, moving to the United States when she was 5 years old. Her favorite international experience, outside of visiting Bosnia during her childhood, was teaching English to elementary and middle school students and interning at a newspaper office in Turkey while an undergraduate at UF.
