In today’s interview, I sit down with local lady Minja Musich. It was the best way to spend a Sunday morning. I would happily chat with Minja for hours, but today we’re discussing her experience with the war in her home country Bosnia and moving to Minnesota as a teenager. She speaks so powerfully about her experience as an immigrant and all of the obstacles she overcame to settle her into her new life. We talk about language, coexisting with others, her love of performance, and how she came to modeling after the death of her father.
