Welcome to my blog!

27 May

In a few short days I will be boarding a (17 hour!) flight to Prishtina, Kosovo and starting an exciting and unknown journey.  I cannot wait!!! I am eager to both begin my partnership with the Kosovo Women’s Network and share my experiences with YOU, the readers.

Since I joined The Advocacy Project as a Peace Fellow destined for Kosovo, I have fielded many questions from family, friends and just about everyone else (not that I mind, I have done a ton of research).  Most were unable to locate Kosovo on a map, let alone address the situation of women’s rights in the country.  The good news is that all of them were genuinely curious and expressed their interest to learn more.

Therefore, I want to use this blog to not only advocate for the Kosovo Women’s Network and the women they represent but to also help educate those not in the know on the issues. So please send in your questions, comments and topics you want to hear about and keep reading!

Oh, and check out the map!
