Youth activism, Environment
My name is Egzona Bexheti. I was born in Kumanovo, North Macedonia, and I’ve been living in Kosovo since 2001 with my family. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Law, and I am currently at the end of my Master’s program in International Relations at the University of Prishtina. As my interests lie in gender equality, I’m writing my thesis on both the EU’s standards and Kosovo’s legal framework on gender equality. I also aim to continue with my Ph.D. in the same field. Currently, I’m engaged as a researcher at the Transitional Justice Resource Center at the Faculty of Law. In addition to my studies, I’m a volunteer with two NGOs here in Kosovo – the Kosova Young Lawyers and CET Prizren. I’m very passionate about projects relating to youth and have been a passionate participant in numerous activities and training events both in Kosovo and abroad. As with my peers in the field of international relations, I have a more global perspective that is coupled with a curiosity to learn about other countries and cultures. I believe that the best way to broaden both academic and general knowledge is to travel and to carry out a part of our education abroad while living among other cultures.
