When she was seven, she lost her mother. Due to financial hardship, her immediate family, her father and her older sister, became unable to take care of her so her aunt took her in.
Brankica graduated from primary and secondary school while living with her aunt. Despite the difficult situation, she says that this was a nice part of her life.
She took English classes and volunteered when she could. She is grateful to Bosana foundation for this scholarship because her father would not be able to provide financial support for her education.
She is positive that her education and this scholarship is a road to a better future.
