Arlinda (Youth Research Board)

Hello everyone, my name is Arlinda, I come from Kosova, in a city called Prizren. 

I’m studying Cultural Anthropology in the University of Prishtina, and I participated in the Changing the Story project, ReSpace.

My talent is that I draw and I paint; I got the talent from my grandfather. I like doing ethnography so much and getting interviews.  

Being a part of Changing the Story is amazing as i get to see more diversity in other cultures and meet new people. 

The biggest issue where I live, is I would say school. Not many people who live here have access to school because we are a new country and because financially unstable. A lot of children and young people have to work just to have food on their tables. What I want to achieve through Changing the Story, is to help create access to any kind of schooling program that will help anyone in my country.
