Elona Beqiraj lives in Germany, but her roots are in Rugova, Kosova. She is currently a high school student and plans to study journalism after she graduates. She loves traveling, stringing words together, and singing while strumming the two strings of her cifteli. She dreams of one day moving back to Kosova, where she will hike in the mountains of Rugova, drink Nescafé with her cousins in Pejë, and capture her country's majestic beauty through her lens. Elona is in the midst of working on a project to empower and enlighten youth across the Albanian diaspora and enable them to understand and commemorate the Kosova War of 1999. Through the photographs and memoirs of those who lived through the war, she vows to never allow the courage and strength of her people to be forgotten.
