About Me

Call me Tam. I am first and foremost a storyteller, a writer who found her purpose lending a voice to others.

Born in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, I am a former refugee and an American citizen. By day, I work in development for RefugePoint, an international NGO focused on creating lasting solutions for the world’s most vulnerable refugees. By night, I am a graduate student in Refugee Protection and Forced Migration with the University of London’s School of Advanced Study and Refugee Law Initiative.

And in the moments in between, I steal away to write this blog, connecting with other refugees and advocates in the hopes of telling their stories to humanize and individualize refugeehood. You can read more pieces of my refugee story here.
