Amazing Lives Right Outside Your Comfort Zone. ~ Maja Despot

“It is rarely failure that stops us from succeeding, it is the fear of failure that does.” ~ Maja Despot

Great accomplishments require great risk—don’t be afraid to jump. Start living.


Maja Despot is a college student trying to figure out her place in the world, while making a positive impact. She’s a veggie, a blogger and mother of a feisty puppy named Minnie, whom she absolutely adores. She enjoys yoga, crafts and learning. Maja came to United States in 1997 from the former Yugoslavia. Six months later she was fluent in English. She’s currently studying Sociology at the University of Illinois at Chicago and hopes to use it to give back to the refugee community.
