DSOUTH:  Thanks for taking some time to chat today, and answering ten top questions that our readers really want to know. First up, where are you from?
TAMARA:  Bosnia & Herzegovina.

DSOUTH:  Where did you attend college?
TAMARA:  Georgia State University.

DSOUTH:  Growing up, did you always have a dream of going into the events industry?
TAMARA:  I knew I always wanted to be in the hospitality industry. Working at Georgia State University on the campus events made me realize I loved creating events!

DSOUTH:  What do you enjoy most about working at Destination South?
TAMARA:  No two days are the same, especially on the creative team. We’re always brainstorming new ideas and concepts.

DSOUTH:  Outside of work what are your hobbies and interests?
TAMARA:  Traveling, music festivals, hiking and going to events around the city (Atlanta).

DSOUTH:  If a movie were being made about you which celebrity would you choose to play you?
TAMARA:  Angelina Jolie or Rachel McAdams.

DSOUTH:  If you could take only one more vacation where would you go?
TAMARA:  This is a tough one! So many places to see in the world, but I would go back to Portugal. I fell in love with their culture, food, architecture and their way of life is just magical. It was an overall feeling that I can’t describe in words. I would actually move there.

DSOUTH:  What’s your favorite ‘Friday’ jam? You know, end of the week celebration song?
TAMARA:  I don’t have just one favorite Friday jam, I listen to a lot of genres of music. It just really depends on my mood on Friday and that’s what I jam to.

DSOUTH:  What was the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?
TAMARA:  The new Beauty and the Beast Movie, it was family movie night!

DSOUTH:  Each and every day, what inspires you?
TAMARA:  If it’s for work I’d have to say all of the events that I attend outside of work. From music festivals to beer festivals, there’s always something new and exciting that I want to take back and try to incorporate in our events. In life, I’m inspired when I travel and experience things I normally don’t do in my day to day. Stepping outside of my comfort zone and trying new things always inspires me to think differently and freely.

DSOUTH:  Love it! Thank you again Tamara for the quick chat – we appreciate you!
