Towards the 14 highest peaks of the world with "Utalaya-Himalaya" project
It seems that people perceive these two women as worthy representatives of Kosovo, as the country celebrates its 10 year anniversary of Independence. We demand readers not to consider the reality as a sexist approach, but in reality the positive image of Kosovo for a decade has been dominated by women. The judo champions, Majlinda Kelmendi and Nora Gjakova; the first head of the commune in Kosovo, Mimoza Kusari-Lila; Dua Lipa, the girl from Kosova who won a British Award in the last edition, the USA ambassador, Vlora Çitaku, these are some renowned names who continue to contribute in their professional fields. The strongest positive image of independent Kosovo continues to be the former president, Atifete Jahjaga (2011-2016). She was active in internationalizing the issue of Survivors of Sexual Violence during Kosovo War, and supporting the project “I think about you” (“Mendoj për ty”) by artist Alketa Xhafa – Mripa. Ms. Jahjaga was the first to reach the peaks of world politics, as Uta Ibrahimi is the first Albanian women from Kosovo that conquered the heighest world peak. Everyone is inspired to follow on their steps.
