What do you do, where are you based?
Since September 2014, I work at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a Senior Officer for EU and Europe. I am part of the Department of EU and Europe and I cover the European Council and a group of countries including the United Kingdom, France, and Spain. In 2013, I earned a masters degree at the London School of Economics (LSE, UK) in Political Economy of Europe.
What is the most you like about the job you do?
Diplomacy is a profession that has a lot of advantages, but also requires sacrifices in return. Nevertheless, among the highlights is the fact that this profession allows you to represent your country in various discussions, debates, summits, and other meetings. At the same time, diplomacy pushes you to learn new languages, cultures, and customs, making it a great profession for those who are interested in exploring the world.
What is the best thing about the city you live in?
Prishtina is not a city which you can fully appreciate or understand through pictures or words. You have to live it, meet its people, taste its food, enjoy a beer (in one of the numerous café bars around the center) and most importantly relive your life through a makiato. On the other side, Prishtina is a city with a lot of stories ranging from a lost river to a fierce passion for music, culture and sports (titles are an obsession for us). As someone who has spent most of his life in Prishtina, while visiting many cities around the world, I am sure that no city in the world can replicate the warmness and loveliness of Prishtina.
