ABOUT ME

O meni

Hi! My name is Stella Neuschul. I am a 16 year old living in San Francisco. I was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia, and moved to America when I was 8 years old. About 9 years ago, I began playing basketball. I have been a basketball coach for 4th and 1st graders as well as coaching a basketball camp for one year. I play for a select travel team and have played on my High School team for 3 years. Basketball has played a great role in my life, as I have found something I am truly passionate about. ​

Cao! Ja se zovem Stella Neuschul. Imam 16 godina i zivim u San Francisku. Rodjena sam u Sarajevu i preselila sam se u Ameriku kada sam imala 8 godina. Prije 9 godina od prilike, pocela sam da igram kosarku. Bila sam trener kosarke za prve i cetvrte razrede i trener ljetne skole kosarke. Igram za privatni klub osam godina i za svoj skolski tim vec tri godine. Kosarka ima veliki uticaj na moj zivot, jer sam nasla nesto sto strastveno volim. 

 

About the Camp

O Ljetnoj Skoli

Through my camp, "The Others" I am eager to introduce this energizing sport to girls who haven't had the opportunity to learn it. The camp will take place in Ruzica, Bosnia from August 3rd-7th 2020, where 10 teenage Roma girls will learn to play basketball. I will teach them basic basketball rules, skills and drills as well as playing fun games and scrimmages. All of the girls will provided with necessary equipment such as basketballs, jerseys, shorts, backpacks as well as daily snacks and water. 

The Bosnian Constitution recognizes only 3 groups of people as constituent citizens: Serb-Orthodox, Croat-Catholics and Bosniac-Muslims. Everyone else, including Jews, multi-faith, and Roma people, are "The Others" and have lesser rights as citizens of this country. Roma people are especially ostracized as an ethnic group. They are often discriminated against in the most inhumane ways. Coming from a multi-faith family, as a proud "Other", inspired by the equality that the US Constitution provides, I feel obliged to end the cycle of discrimination of other "Others". By organizing a basketball summer camp, Roma girls will have an opportunity to participate in an activity that they normally don't have access to.  

To impact the lives of these girls, please contribute to the GoFundMe! 

Kroz moju ljetnu skolu kosarke, "Ostali", ja zelim da predstavim ovaj energican sport djevojcicama koje nisu imale priliku da ga igraju. Ljetna skola kosarke je organizovan u selu Ruzica, BiH od 3.-7. augusta 2020 gdje ce 10 djevojcica nauciti kako se igra kosarka. Djevojcice ce nauciti osnovna pravila, vjestine, i vjezbe. Sve djevojcice ce dobiti neophodnu opremu, kao sto su dresovi, kosarkaske lopte, torbe, kao i dnevne uzine. 

Bosanski Ustav priznaje samo tri grupe konstituvnih naroda: Srbe, Hrvate i Bosnjake.  Svi ostali, ukljucujuci Jevreje, mjesane brakove i Rome, su "Ostali" i imaju manje prava od ostalih gradjana.  Romi su posebno diskriminirani kao enticka grupa, vrlo cesto na najnehimanije nacine. Dolazeci iz mijesane porodice, i kao ponosna pripadnica grupe "Ostalih", a inspirisana jednakim pravima iz Americkog Ustava, osjecam se obaveznom da prekinem ciklus diskriminacije prema "Ostalima".  Organizujuci ljetnu skolu kosarke, Romske djevojcice ce imati priliku da ucestvuju u aktivnostima u kojima inace nemaju priliku da ucestvuju.

Ako zelite da uticete na zivote ovih djevojcica, doniraj te u GoFundMe!
