Maja fled to the Netherlands as a teenager. During the study period she worked as a teacher of Argentine tango and as a volunteer at cultural festivals. In recent years she has done research into mass violence, with a focus on Balkan wars. She also worked at the Yugoslavia Tribunal. She interviewed victims, bystanders and the perpetrators. From this background comes the fascination to use the individual stories and their potential in the fields of art and education.

‘Every refugee ambassador is with his story a beacon of humanity, and an inspiration for others. Each story also highlights achievements such as freedom, security and social security. I would like to support the personal and social quest of the team of Refugee Ambassadors.’
‘Ik vind het belangrijk dat vluchtelingen de kans krijgen om hun krachtige persoonlijke verhalen te delen om op die manier de beeldvorming over vluchtelingen te verbeteren.’
