Paige arrived in Bosnia and Herzegovina as part of the first YES Abroad group to be placed in Banja Luka, a predominantly Serbian Orthodox city in the north of the country. Everything was completely new, and she had many questions. In fact, she’d had many questions in the months leading up to her departure, but couldn’t seem to find the answers she was looking for.

“YES Abroad has been sending students to Bosnia and Herzegovina since 2012, but all of the students up to this point had been placed in Sarajevo,” she explains. In addition to tips and advice from alumni, Paige pointed out that future students coming to Banja Luka were at another advantage: Sarajevo is the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and there is much more information available online about Sarajevo than there is about Banja Luka.
