Vedrana Klem

23 years old

“I don’t think I’ll find a job here. As soon as they see you’re Romani, nobody will take you. It was hard for me to find traineeship, let alone a job at this point. They think that you smell bad because you’re a Gipsy, and that they’ll lose customers because of you.”

Vedrana graduated from a hairdressing vocational school as a straight-A student, and was the first Roma woman to represent her school at an inter-county competition.
