Youth Activism, Environment and Sport
My name is Emirjon Lleshi, and I’m a master’s student in Accounting and Auditing at the University of Tirana. I graduated from the Agricultural University of Tirana with a Bachelor in Finance and Accounting. Over the last two years, I’ve been working at the largest business organisation in Albania – the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Tirana – as a Finance Officer. As my work allows me to build a large network of contacts from across different entrepreneurial sectors, I’ve used this opportunity to support young people and my peers in either sourcing for investors, or promoting their innovative ideas at the start-up level. I’ve been a business provider with the Enterprise Europe Network since January 2019. In April 2019, I was assigned by the CCIT to support my colleagues in organising the Patras IQ Event, where many young Albanians promoted their ‘Agricultural Innovation Ideas.’ It makes me feel good when I’m able to assist Albanian youths who wish to penetrate the entrepreneurial world. Along the years of my study and work, I’ve participated in a number of trainings and events relating to my profession, as well as leadership abilities. I’m obsessed with all things related to nature, and I spend my free time exploring it, planting various trees in my garden, and caring for them.
