Hello I am Benard and I come from a town Fushë-Kruja. I am currently completing the second year of my bachelor studies in sociology, at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Tirana. My engagement in civil society began when I was 16 and joined an initiative led by an organization known as the Roma Gate for Integration, which helps Roma children who lived in the streets and who had dropped out of school. I have participated in various awareness campaigns, with my engagements largely revolving around minority rights, education, and youth issues – particularly with regard to advocacy work. I have also participated in various youth trainings, and was involved in two projects that were grounded on the inclusivity of young people. I am currently on the position of project facilitator and logistics manager at Roma Gate for Integration.
