During my 3,5 month internship at Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Prishtina, I was able to experience different fields of political work, participate in various projects and supported the team. I was involved in planning and organizing events as well as seminars and what was most important for me, the activities kept me busy and I never left the office bored. Each team member took the time to answer my questions and introduced me to his or her projects. Aside from the great support relating to work, socializing such as having lunch or coffee together and discussing about politics or every day life issues was a very natural part of the team and resulted in a pleasant atmosphere. I really enjoyed my time in the office and in general in Kosovo, even or especially because I got to know the real life problems, the people have to face every day.

Despite my short stay of only two months, my time at Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Prishtina will be a memorable one. I was able to learn more about how the foundation operates on a daily basis and what it takes to prepare events/activities and how to keep a project going with all its obstacles. Not speaking Albanian made some aspects more challenging but not impossible. The team welcomed me with open arms and helped me with all my questions, both work and non-work related, which made it easy to feel as a full team-member. Having lunch and coffee together as a team made the work environment a very pleasant one. Finally, not only did I obtain useful skills for my future professional endeavors, but I also learned a lot about Kosovo and the Western Balkans with all the struggles and beauty the region has to offer.
