As a child she braved a revolution in her home country of Albania. She survived being kidnapped while in school. An athlete in her youth. A scholarship recipient which eventually landed her in the states... just to witness the 9/11 terrorist attacks outside of her Bronx window. She nestles up in her safe haven home in California, where she eventually finds her voice and platform. She's excited to fill us in how how she wants to use her new platform to make changes not just for herself, but for human equality on a national level. We were all taken back by her story. We think you will be too.
