Aida Hadzialic is a 27-year-old Bosnian Muslim immigrant to Sweden, and she now becomes Sweden's youngest Minister ever to serve in a Swedish government.
Aida Hadzialic will serve as Sweden's new Education Minister.
Born in 1987 in Foča, Bosnia, Aida Hadzialic fled from war in Bosnia-Herzegovina along with her family and arrived in Sweden when she was five years old.
She was named Minister of Education earlier in October in Stefan Löfven new cabinet in the new Upper Secondary School and Adult Education Initiative in Sweden.
Hadzialic became the deputy mayor of the Swedish city Halmstad at the age of 23, and she is a law graduate from the University of Lund.
Hadzialic says she became a social democrat because of the Swedish welfare model that gave her family new opportunities to start afresh after they fled from war.
Earlier we wrote about the new Swedish Civilian Minister, Ardalan Shekarabi, who is also an immigrant to Sweden, but was first deported as an illegal immigrant by the Swedish government in 1989.
