BY AIDA CAVALIC
Aida Cavalic was born in Banja Luka in then-Yugoslavia. She and her family arrived to the United States as refugees, settling in Massachusetts. Aida graduated from Wellesley College and went on to pursue an MA in economics in Brussels, followed by an MA in nationalism studies in Budapest. By day, Aida is a financial analyst, because she didn’t think she could make a living writing fiction and poetry. She currently lives in Washington, DC with her wife, two small children, and a very lazy cat.
