“Music gives me the ability to express my thoughts, wishes, dreams. It is a way of channeling creativity and my favorite way of storytelling. It is often difficult for young musicians to find where they belong, a place where they can express themselves to the fullest. I can proudly say that I have found that place and I am beyond grateful for it. The Mitrovica Rock School gave me so much. I can share my ideas with people who are just as creative and just as excited about the process of making music as I am. I always have someone to talk to and ask for help. I met most of my good friends through music and for that I can only thank the Mitrovica Rock School.

“Music is an art form that will never fail you and will always be there for you. To be honest, to me, it’s much more than just an art form. It is a way of altering space and time, making the untouchable touchable and being able to dive into all kinds of emotions. Music makes me vulnerable. Music makes me strong. It makes me feel and it makes me love. But most importantly, music makes me – me.”
