"I was born and brought up in Slovenia, a country of 2 million people of whom less than 200 are Jewish. I did not feel Jewish because I never had the possibility to talk about it and meet Jewish people outside of my family. My family, as many Jewish ones, is scattered on 3 continents, so I always felt the need to live somewhere with multiculturalism. And in a way, I always felt the need to find myself."
