I grew up in Serbia, a country with a rich history in which people always enjoy good food and good music. I am 29 and have lived through 2 wars. In those bad times my grandmother used to always take me to her garden of roses and taught me that even if bad things are happening, there is always something good that comes along with it and that I should focus on those good things in my life. That is where my love towards flowers was born. Every time I felt sad I would go to the garden of roses and enjoy beautiful colors and fragrance.
In 2010 I decided to seek my fortune in the United States. I initially was an au pair, working for my host American family in North Carolina. After 14 months, I visited San Francisco, fell in love with the City and moved here. Now I live in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. Since moving to San Francisco I have been working as a restaurant hostess. But shortly after coming to the City, I started making flower arrangements for friends and reconnected with my real passion in life. I decided to follow my dream and start a business as a florist so I could earn a good living while expressing my creativity, love for beauty, and desire to make others happy.
