Biljana Milenkovic

Biljana Milenkovic, also known as “B,” is an experienced television and print journalist, practiced in all aspects of media production. She is a media intern in the Communications Department at CDF. B has been in visual storytelling for a decade, first in Serbia and for the past several years in the United States. B holds a B.A. in film and media arts from American University. She wants to use her media and production skills to tell the stories of the people who make history, the people who build the movement from the bottom up and often remain unknown. Howard Zinn wrote about these unknown heroes and they exist today. As an immigrant with a background in journalism, social organizing, and law, she wants to continue to put her skills into service for those voices.

B does not go anywhere without her camera and a “protest whistle.” She enjoys Washington, D.C., for being pedestrian and biker friendly. B is an avid supporter of independent media, and she starts her day with a dose of Democracy Now! and a big cup of coffee.
