Kaltrina Ademi was born in Libya, raised in Germany, and currently lives and works in London, but her roots are in Kosova. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Media and Communications from the University of Westminster and is hoping to continue working on her Masters in Political Science at the King’s College University of London in Autumn of 2015. She started writing when she was 8 years old, and throughout the years it became her way of processing thoughts and feelings that she had trouble to express. In 2008 she won Poetry Prize of the year awarded by the Brentano Gesellschaft in Frankfurt, Germany. She continued to post poetry on different German outlets and is also a painter and artist, with some of her works having been shown at the UNESCO exhibition in Paris in 2008. She also is known for starting the feminist series of posts, “Let’s Talk About Sex”, on Kosovo 2.0 in 2011, that spoke of gender Identity, sexism and a predominantly misogynist culture. Kaltrina has been hiding in the shadows for the past few years, as she would like to call it, in order to focus on herself and the woman she wants to become. She would like to write the kind of pieces that give women the strength and determination to face their fears, and the courage to detach themselves from outdated social norms and ideals that stand in contrast to their own identity.
