Hello, I'm Maria Milojković, an English-Serbian translator and content creator from Belgrade (Serbia).
Although I earned a fancy master’s in postmodern English literature, I had to do whatever they told me.
And so I:
✔ taught bored teenagers, ✔ translated manuals for a smoking machine, ✔ and whispered into the CEO’s ear at meetings.
And I translated a lot in these 19 years: from rock concerts to art, from finance to legal contracts and foreign trade. My latest translation from Serbian to English is an art book published by Central European University. You can buy it online from Barnes & Noble.
Also, I'm a big psychology nerd, so I took a Yale course a few years ago.
On Medium, I write about everything that makes life worth living, our souls, and the past. The only things I don’t write about are productivity hacks and quick happiness tips because life doesn’t work that way.
Also, I've written a book.
When my twins were little, I wrote a bilingual children’s book Just a Blackbird: The Story of Growing Up. It is about a tiny outsider who looks for love and happiness.
And here is the link to my most popular stories this month.
