The I In Immigrant: Bedrija Nikocevic From Bosnia

89.1 WBOI's podcast, The I In Immigrant, is hosted and created by Ahmed Abdelmageed.

The podcast features interviews with residents about their experieneces living as an immigrant in the United States and balancing traditions and family dynamics.

If you ask Bedrija where she's from, she might chuckle and tell you, "it's complicated." Bedrija was born in Bosnia, but war and conflict drove her and her family to Croatia where she spent her formative years. Ultimately she moved to the United States, settling in Chicago.

Bedrija spoke with Ahmed about the circumstances that led to her family's departure from their homeland, diaspora, and why she still considers Bosnia home after all these years.
