I am from Tirana, Albania, a beautiful small country north of Greece.
Besides my mother tongue and English, I speak French and Italian and love the way they sound. My French is a bit rusty, but I am trying to practice whenever I find the chance. I enjoy cooking, and swimming (not competitively of course) and admire various types of visual arts.

I received my undergrad degree from the American University in Bulgaria (AUBG) and spent my junior year as an exchange student at Truman State University. During my time at AUBG I was part of the Skaptopara II Resident Assistant team, a position that helped me grow and balance multiple responsibilites.

At NYU, I have been an ARISE mentor twice and am helping organize CSAW 2020 Applied Research Competition . I also volunteered as a reviewer in the Grace Hopper Privacy and Security Committee.
