This is Me
I was born in Istanbul, Turkey. I am a Model, Actress, Filmmaker and Philanthropist. As a child of a mother diplomat I lived in few countries, got education in different languages and prestigious schools. My first screen debut was as a child in commercial ads as I was noticed as a leader of drama club in pre-school. At that young age I played few roles in one part, by using few languages, dancing, singing and impersonating acting skills. I was noticed by the production of one of the main TV stations - TGRT in Istanbul, Turkey. Very soon I became a face of Aroma fruit juice and a model for few children catalogues for Pars McCann Erickson advertisement agency in Istanbul.
I continued my carrier as a host of the weekly shows TEEN for three years, on Radio Television of Kosovo (RTK) public TV. The show was ranked as #1 show of all times. At the same time I was a model for many fashion brands, active in a humanitarian minority project for UNICEF, starred as a special actress guest in TV serial Modern Family, a was a special guest in many TV and radio shows in Kosovo, Croatia, Turkey, Macedonia and Albania, face of many covers of magazines and billboards, performed and hosted many festivals and presentations, etc.

At that time I wrote columns for prestigious magazines such as Grazia, Iliria etc, was active in many PR campaigns such as Presidential Campaign 2010, involved in student teaching guest in acting private schools and communication agencies. As I was chosen as one of the rare talents, I pursued my education at Griffith College Dublin, Ireland where I graduated with HONS degree on Journalism and Visual Media. During the college time I produced many short stories, advertisements, etc.
After graduation I got the role of the executive producer for the first reality show for public TV in Kosovo, RTK by name ‘We Have a Job For You’. After the second episode the reality show became #1 ranking TV show. In the role of the executive producer and director I filmed the documentary National Treasure - Prof. Dr. Skender Rizaj and was awarded as a documentary of the year. At the same time, I produced a commercial ad for Hotel Nartel, for which I got the second prize from the Touristic Center of Kosova, served as a creative consultant for the production Entermedia for ads broadcasted on CNN and BBC.

In 2014 I started as a co-founder an NGO “Kosova’s Philanthropists” for the project Hand to Hand, building the first summer camp for orphans and children with special needs of all communities in Kosovo. Shortly I gathered a big number of public faces in Kosovo and afterwards in New York City to perform the anthem Band-Aid song Hand to Hand. I chose NYC for this project message as US is the role model for tolerance and peace building. I produced and directed the music videos for both versions of the Band-Aid song.
