Die gute Frau ist Vize-Aussenministerin, aber das Einfältige und Dumme, irgendeinen Job erhalten ist ja normal bei Albanern.

“Many people say America is a land of opportunity; a place where dreams come true,“ says 29-year-old Vlora Citaku. „Guess what? I have news for you. Kosovo is too.”
Citaku is Kosovo’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and a member of Parliament.
In her life, Citaku has witnessed the misery of being a refugee and the glory of being among the people who signed Kosovo’s Declaration of Independence on February 17th, 2008.
Vlora was been a part of Kosovo politics since 1999. “Being involved in politics was not a choice,” says Citaku. “It was a lifestyle, a way of surviving.“ Vlora graduated from the University of Prishtina with a degree on the linguistics and law.
In Kosovar politics, Vlora says she has managed to challenge the stereotypical image that you must be old and be a man. She admits that it has not been easy, but says she will not give up until she reaches the very top. “ I too have a dream and it will come true,” says Citaku. “I will not give up until a woman’s role in Kosovo politics is considered natural.”
Vlora Citaku is currently studying at Kosovo Institute for Journalism and Communications.
