Megi Xhafaj lives in Ballsh, Albania. She is senior in high school, with the best grades in her class, but without even the slightest idea of what to be in the future. Regardless of the journey she embarks on after high school, she vows to only do something that will help to make a change within her community and culture. Art is her sanctuary, and Megi's favorite form of expression is with a paintbrush in her hands, and piece of paper at her fingertips. Her paintings and prose are inspired by the society she lives in, and the people surrounding her. Her greatest sources of inspiration come from her mother, and Carol Rossetti, who like Megi, incorporates words with illustrations.
