She participated in many specific contemporary music courses: Darmstadt, Impuls-Graz, Acanthes-Metz and mastered her knowledge of the contemporary techniques with Mario Caroli.

Zinajda graduated from the University of Graz with the outstanding tutoring of the flutists Vera Fischer and Eva Furrer in 2011 with highest honours as one of the best graduates in Austrian Universities of that year. From then on she collaborates as a substitute with the Klangforum Wien. She shares her love for contemporary music with friends and colleagues from Graz in the Ensemble Schallfeld since its foundation in 2013. In summer 2013 she debuted as soloist with the London Contemporary Orchestra and since then she works as their member.

Between 2011 and 2015 she was also teaching techniques of contemporary music on flute at the University of Music Graz in the flute-class of Nils-Thilo Kraemer. Since 2012 she is broadcasting at the Italian National Radio-RAI in Trieste as reviewer and essayist for children and adults.
