Aleksandra Rebic is an American of Serbian heritage born and raised in the Chicago area, the daughter of Serbian parents who emigrated to the United States from the former Yugoslavia and made America their home. She is a graduate of Northwestern University in Evanston, IL with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communication Studies from the School of Speech.

Aleksandra has been an aspiring writer and student of history all of her life. While employed at a successful data processing company with both national and international clientele, she dedicates much of her free time to the freelance writing that she hopes will make a difference. Her focus and interests cover a wide range of topics, and her goal is to move and inspire people to see things from a different perspective. Aleksandra has been published in both Serbian and American newspapers and extensively online. She is co-author, with her father Rade, of the book "Dragoljub-Draza Mihailovich i Drugi Svetski Rat: Istorija Jedne Velike Izdaje" ("Dragoljub-Draza Mihailovich and the Second World War: History of a Great Betrayal") published in the Serbian language, that incorporates translations of material originally published in the English language, and of a number of reports that she has issued through the years, all in the English language, which include translations of material originally issued in the Serbian language.

Aleksandra has also established and is the administrator of two active websites online dedicated to educating both Serbs and non-Serbs about the true role that the Serbian people have played in world events throughout history. The two websites are:


Visitors to both websites will find postings in either the English or Serbian language or both, including postings that incorporate a translation of the material provided by Aleksandra.

With her father, she has organized and hosted several successful events, including the 1993 "Mihailovich 100th Birthday Celebration" and the 1994 "Halyard Mission 50th Anniversary Commemoration," both held in Chicago.

Her current project in progress, together with her father, is "HEROES OF SERBIA," a special tribute book honoring the pivotal role the Serbs played in the Allied victory in World War One. "Heroes of Serbia" will be published in both the English and Serbian language in 2015, with the ultimate goal of having the tribute published in multiple languages in future years.

Along with the tribute book project, Aleksandra and her father are currently promoting their initiative to establish a MEMORIAL GARDEN in Serbia dedicated to the HEROES OF SERBIA 1912-1918.

Aleksandra remains a loyal American patriot who believes in the Serbian cause. Her many other interests and passions include photography, travel, nature and the outdoors, entertainment (movies, music, and television), reading, spending quality time with family and friends, planning and enjoying outings and new adventures, and sharing her Christian faith.

She currently resides and works in the Chicagoland area and is available for speaking engagements.
