Vanja’s parents, Vesna Juraic and Milan Bosnić, got divorced when she was 11 years old. Prior to their divorce, she had lived her life as a fairy but after her parents got separated, she had to grow up and take responsibilities. After their separation, she had completely lost touch with her father and was greatly affected by his father’s absence in her life. At the age of 12 years, she realised the hardships of life and decided to take some responsibilities on her shoulders in order to help her mother. She learned to cook, do laundry and clean the apartment to reduce the workload of her mother. When she was 21 years old, her mother gifted her an apartment and asked her to move out and start living an independent life. During that phase, she looked after herself, studied and worked to earn a living. By that time, she had matured enough as she had struggled as a teenager.
