LDA Albania delegation represented Republic of Albania in the world largest event WFYS2017 in Sochi, Russia!

Quote

My statement after the successful participation on the WFYS in Russia 2017:

An unprecedented honor to represent the Albanian nation for the first time in this worldwide festival.

The organization which I led, “LDA Albania & Kosovo” was the only organization in the Republic of Albania who gave the opportunity to the Albanian state to be represented with a delegation of 20 young people in Sochi, Russia, among 30,000 young people from 180 countries.

I can trustworthy say that was not just a milestone but a dream and an ideal realized by young people by promoting solidarity, peace and social justice, a story to write, a start for a mission, an international vision that we will reach…

Unexpected Allies in Medellín

Do you remember your first day of school? I remember my first day of school in bursts: in Miami, Florida, where I went to my first day of preschool, we mixed paints; in Buffalo, New York, where, when looking around the room, I immediately knew there was not a single person who looked like me; in Rochester, New York, on my first day of college, I met some of my forever friends; and in Washington, DC, the first day of grad school, my peers all told stories about their aspirations, and I cracked a joke…and was forever known by it. Every time, it has been my peers who stood out the most to me. My first day at my placement school in Medellín was no different, but it was also so much more.
