Belkize Islami - Xhaferi
My name is Belkize Islami Xhaferi and I am 29 years old and come from Gjilan.
I finished primary and secondary school in Ferizaj, then continued my bachelor studies and graduated in 2013 from the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
From a young age I was engaged in social activities and I was always involved in the protection of minority rights as I also come from a minority community in Kosovo. During my studies I was part of various projects where through my commitment I called and raised my voice for the education of girls from the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities. I also advocated for the protection and promotion of women's rights from these communities.
I continued my master’s studies in the field of Automation of Production Processes at the Technical Faculty in Prishtina and am on the cusp of graduating. I continue to be a civil society activist in Peja, another city in Kosovo.
My desire is to see as many girls from communities completing higher education and more employed women. I hope that one day I will be the model of a powerful woman surrounded by other young women pursuing their dreams.
