Bosnia & Herzegovina is a country that brings up #strong #women. Another Bosnian (former) women’s basketball player is Razija Mujanovic – she was elected to the FIBA Hall of Fame in 2017 and voted the best female European basketball player three times by the Italian magazine La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Women are the driving #force behind changing perception and values about our country and among our people within and outside the B&H boarders; strong and ambitious women will help us overcome current obstacles and unite us a nation.
