Olivera Jankovska is an award-winning community activist and champion for children's rights. She works for, and is committed to, the mission of the United Nations. She is an imaginative soul who transforms her daydreams into creative expressions. Olivera sings, dances, and writes, but her favorite ability is to be able to engage with people around the world in the eight languages she is proficient in. A published economist with a love for numbers and a service leader at her core, Olivera is an avid traveler whose mission in life is to be an organizer for peace and to inspire the celebration of diversity. She is a global citizen with rich personal and professional stories. Olivera, a native of Macedonia, and her husband, Tushar, who hails from India are raising a trilingual son and are helping him navigate life at the nexus of three very different homelands. The My Homeland book series was inspired by Olivera's desire to ensure her son appreciates his Indian, Macedonian, and American heritage, and to celebrate immigrants like her and second-generation nationals like her son.
