Lebenslauf:
Selma Selman earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in 2014 from Banja Luka University’s Department of Painting and in 2018 I graduated from Syracuse University, Master of Fine Arts. She is currently living and working in both the USA and Europe.
Beginning from trading her art for any resources she could ask for in 2015, she founded an organization titled ”Get The Heck To School” to aid vulnerable youth in her hometown, Bihac.
Today this organization has successfully prevented 7 at-risk girls from dropping out through scholarship funds, and providing daily lunches for 40 children with impoverished parents.
She created The Children’s Intelligence Agency, a 10 year old organization teaching self-emancipation in Bosnia, Croatia, India and NYC. Selman has aided the undocumented gain citizenship and taught feminist workshops in which she transfers both feminist theory and self-defense strategies for rape prevention.
