bord direktora, Kosovska energetska korporacija
Nije bilo lako odlučiti se da studiram tehnički fakultet. Svi su govorili: ‘Flanza, zašto ideš tamo? Nije to za tebe.‘ Bilo nas je tri žena koje smo završile u isto vreme i bile smo dobre studentkinje. Radile smo mnogo, ali su nas ljudi konstantno pitali zašto studiramo. Pričali bi nam da bi morali da napustimo studiranje da bismo se udale, da bismo imali vremena za decu. Nisam marila za takve stvari.
Fllanza Beqiri-Hoxha is one of the Kosovo energy sector’s pioneering women. When she made the decision to pursue studies in the technical faculty in Prishtina, she was one of only three women in the program. “We were good students. We worked hard, but people were asking why we were studying. They would tell us that we would have to leave to be married, to have time for our children. I didn’t care about these things,” said Beqiri-Hoxha, who now serves on the board of directors for Kosovo Energy Corporation, and works as a mentor to young women in the field.
