Zora Prica was born in Senje. Having completed primary school and high school for women, she started studying humanities at the Zagreb Liceum. All through her studies at the Liceum, she attended music classes at the Zagreb Institute for Music. She studied philology (English, French and German) at the University of Zürich, and she attended lectures on modern philology and psychology in London. She left for Geneva and then for Zürich to finish her studies. This was delayed by her father’s death. With no financial means at her disposal, she returned to Zagreb, where she gained financial aid from the government which enabled her to study at the University of Vienna. After finishing her studies abroad, she worked as a teacher with young Serbian girls in Pest, but soon after transferred to a private female high school in Munich. Having gained valuable experience in Germany, she returned to Serbia and devoted herself to helping her people, working at the Female High School in Belgrade.
