Alejtin Berisha: Empowering the youth in Kosovo

Speaking on the importance of the education for a society the general director of Universum College, Alejtin Berisha, on the 20th edition of BarCamp Prishtina gave some important messages to the audience. “Education is the key toward a better economic development of a country. Each year the GDP of countries are increasing as a result of better education” he said. After giving his message that university is the place where people meet their future, Alejtin continued speaking on the opportunities that Universum has to offer, especially on the tech field.

Adonis Berisha and Donik Nika: The innovators

Both students at Universum College, Adonis Berisha and Donik Nika are whiz kids who have technology gadgets in their village in Klina out of every day used electronics. They were technical students once in high school and now are doing bachelor in the same field. Impressive enough, they brought to BarCamp their innovative products which we are not used to see in Kosovo. Turning on a car with just a sms and a mouse designed to serve to people with disabilities were innovations which surprised the whole audience gathered in Oda Theatre.
