These have been difficult and exhausting months but at the end it was all worth it since now I get the opportunity to represent my country, Kosovo, in the best way possible.  
This experience allowed me to become more confident and grow within myself but mostly become the woman I’m proud to be today.  
This said, I wanted to thank the organizer Eduart @eduartdeda and his team, but also to thank all the Misses I could meet and have a great time with.  
A big thanks to my family and friends for always supporting me and never giving up on me." Check here the crowning moment video.

I will do the impossible to reach my goals and let my voice be the voice of every citizen. In my second slide you can see an interview that I had after winning Miss Earth Kosovo. We talked about a topic concerning all of us. Our environment. Even at this last hour we still have a choice about our future and every action we take from this moment forward counts. We must embrace a strong vision of a better future. See you soon Philipinnes!" heck here the visuals.

Alijaj has chosen The Balkan Lynx, one of six recognized subspecies of the Eurasian lynx as her as special fauna at Miss Earth.

In addition to the Albanian language, she also speak 5 foreign languages, French, German, English, Luxembourgish and Spanish.

She recalls "When I think about my growing up years, I see a happy girl who was fully loved and cared for by her parents. However, she was shy and struggled with her self–confidence. Her shyness caused her to be reserved around others and stopped her from discovering herself. For example, I always wanted to do ballet, but I couldn’t overcome my anxiety."

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?  
I have my parents, 3 siblings and 1 brother. We are a big family with different personalities. However, we get along very well and learn from each other. They always give me a boost to keep chasing my dreams and without them I wouldn’t stand today where I am. I am thankful to have them.

Consume less, reuse (for example second-hand) and recycle  
Volunteer and plant a tree  
Spread more awareness on social media

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?  
Kosovo has a young population, and it makes me proud to see the youth engaged and motivated to achieve a better future. They have big dreams and a positive mindset. I am proud to see a woman as the head of the state, who is an inspiration for all the young girls in Kosovo and of course for me. And lastly, I am proud of the biodiversity and beautiful nature my country has. I'm hopeful this resilience and determination can also be adopted by how we learn to take care of our country's natural habitats and wildlife.

WHAT IS YOUR ADVOCACY?
My advocacy is educating the youth generation about the importance of our planet and its future. I want to teach them the impact of global warming and to learn how to adapt to climate change. It is vital to act now and be an example for our next generations. Our future leaders.
