“I, along with my father receive this honor with deep gratitude. It is an honor that speaks to our highest aspirations – we believe that democracy, freedom and justice will triumph. We must continue to pursue peace through diplomacy. I hope to represent America, Albania and Kosova with dignity in my efforts of enhancing human rights, justice and women empowerment. I recognize the value of the tremendous American leadership how it changed the course of war toward peace in Kosova. The Albanians are forever grateful to the great American nation. I especially want to thank Senator Harry Reid for his tremendous leadership in United States Senate, especially for his efforts on immigration reform,” said Ermira Babamusta.
