If one were to ask my friends to describe me they would describe me as a very pleasant, diverse, active and intelligent woman. I think one of my most distinguishing characteristics is the diversity of experiences I possess. I am art student with flair for painting and charcoal design. I am a woman with technical aptitude and an interest in art education. I also have a passion for traveling and understanding different cultures of the world. I have lived in three countries and I fluently speak Albanian, Italian, and English. All these elements have given me a very broad outlook, with varying degrees of knowledge in a range of topics. My Art Education degree has given a strong foundation to my teaching skills and my knowledge of art. Over the past four years, I have been working as a culinary artist designing various different cakes and pastries. I also have experience student teaching at the High School level. As a entrepreneur, I have painted multiple portraits for individuals and families and have gained a good reputation as a skilled portrait artist. More than what I have studied in school and college, it has been these experiences that have shaped the person that I am today. I believe that this unique blend of experiences has made me a woman with an original point of view. This blend has given me a broad perspective, a good understanding of life, and a goal to aim for.
