About the author Vesna Milek
Vesna Milek, a writer and a journalist for the newspaper Delo, has been making a difference on the Slovenian media platform with in-depth interviews and articles for Sobotna priloga Dela for more than two decades. She has also been working for the last 5 years as an author and host of the TV show on TVS Od blizu and the shows Rdeče in črno at M-soseska.tv.

She has responded to Iza Sia Login’s invitation to modernize the children’s classic written by Fran Levstik, ‘‘Kdo je Vidku napravil srajčico?’’ (‘‘Who Made Vic’s Shirt?’’) since, as she says herself, this is one of her favorite stories – because it speaks of solidarity, cooperation, and love for all living beings.
