My aim is to promote Kosovo everywhere I go. My hometown, Gjakova, was one of the most destroyed towns during the war, but we got funding to renovate houses into guest homes. I believe they opened in June 2018, and now I see tourists flowing around my town. I’m so proud.
Originally from Gjakova, Blerina Dula moved to Australia shortly after the end of the war. It was there that she was first introduced to the tourism industry. Inspired by her mentors in Australia, and excited by the opportunity to help promote her country, Dula recently returned home to Kosovo where she spent time working with professionals to establish strategies to grow tourism in the region. “My aim is to promote Kosovo wherever I go,” she said.
