Martina works on communication projects to help undergraduate and graduate students understand the wide range of support provided by the Center for Career Development, and how they can engage in career exploration throughout their time at Princeton and beyond. She creates written and multimedia content for multiple platforms including websites, social media and instructional/education materials.

A fun fact about me is: I was born and raised in Montenegro, a small country in the Balkans. Having only moved to the U.S. a few years ago, I still religiously use Celsius and the metric system!

I’m looking forward to my new position because: I’ll get to contribute to students’ career development by ensuring they are aware of the support we offer. I’m also really excited to learn about our students’ individual college experiences and journeys—I hope to communicate those stories with the University community and beyond.

An internship/experiential opportunity that helped shape my career path: After completing my master’s in teaching English as a second language at St. Cloud State University, I went back to Montenegro and found myself working as a journalist at a small nonprofit. This completely changed my career trajectory as I realized how much I enjoy learning about the uniqueness of the human experience and being able to share those stories with large audiences. Also, having access to Adobe Photoshop in my early teens was really pivotal too!

One skill I would like to master: I wish I was more efficient at learning new languages.

Some small things that make my day better are: Video calling my parents and sisters, watching my younger sister live her best life, and getting food and/or bubble tea with my husband and our friends.
