Yamini Singh, Head, American Academy in Zagreb

Born and raised just outside of Washington DC, Yamini Singh grew up in a culturally diverse household. Spending her formative years shuffling between North America, Asia, and Europe only heightened her sense of cultural curiosity, and has lent her a unique perspective that she is eager to share with others.

Yamini holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Mary Washington (Virginia), a Master’s of Humanities with a concentration in Literature from Tiffin University (Ohio), and a CELTA Certificate. Additionally, some of her undergraduate coursework was completed at the Université Paris VIII Vincennes-Saint-Denis.

After studying and teaching in Paris, France, Yamini’s interest in education was sparked. She subsequently spent several years teaching the humanities in Doha, Qatar, and then in Prague, Czechia. She has also lived in Montreal, Canada.

Speaking English and French (and just enough Arabic and Hindi to get by), Yamini considers herself a “third culture kid” who has grown into a true global citizen. Her interests include Modernist art and literature, with a strong penchant for the surreal. She possesses a great passion for learning, and her joy is found in engaging with young people in the classroom. She deeply believes education can change the world, and that in fact it is the only thing that ever has.
