Sasha was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota as a first-generation American of her Balkan family. She studied Architectural Design, Environmental Science, and Sustainability at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and graduated in 2019. She moved to New York in early 2020 to pursue her passions. Her love of plants, cultivation, and environmental care is carried down to her through her family. One of her favorite places to spend time and get her hands dirty is at her Dida’s (grandpa’s) small fruit orchard in Croatia. In her free time, she loves to paint, draw, and imagine! She is also a lifelong soccer fan and player.
