Javeršek Milena

Milena Javeršek moved to Indonesia for seven months after successfully graduating from high school in 2019. There she lived and worked in a center where women are supported in their education and professions. During this volunteer service with the UEM, she became intensely involved with structural racism, climate change, and women’s rights and has since actively campaigned against global injustices.
She is very grateful for the ASEF Fellowship. She is extremely excited to get to know her grandparents’ country of origin, culture, and language.
Milena is very appreciative of this opportunity to grow both personally and professionally and to be able to use the insight and experience gained in her future career. Next year, she will study law at the University of Cologne, specializing in international human rights and peacebuilding.
Suppose she is not spending her free time with her family and friends, reading books in her garden, or playing volleyball. In that case, she is actively involved in youth and children’s work in her local church community. She is currently attending a Slovenian language course with her father, sister, cousin, and aunt. She is more than happy to consolidate and deepen her acquired language skills in Slovenia.
