He invites the community to nominate and to be part of a long-term commitment with ACE. Gerjon continues to support ACE and we will see more of him at this year’s Gala as he takes on a new function, Chair of nomination awards.
Listen to Eliott’s message on the importance of community involvement as a good avenue for people to stand up and fight for matters that are important to them and their communities. Ever since he received the award, he has been more involved with ACE and Albanian- Canadians. The award has helped him to promote his book and to spread powerful messages about the stories of Kosovo Albanians during the war in 1998-1999.
Listen to Melina message as she speaks to the importance of equally embracing both cultures and their values. Melina believes that each of us has unique talent and gifting, but it is everyone’s job to cultivate them and in return use them to make our community a better one. Since last year, Melina has been more involved with ACE, she has had the pleasure to have met many Albanian-Canadians who are gifted, passionate, yet genuine and who strive to make a perfect effort on everything they do.
Endrit, winner of the 2016 ACE Community Achievement Award shares how the nomination came very unexpectedly but it also gave him the reassurance that the work he does in the Albanian Canadian community is valued and appreciated. He believes that it is important to value and celebrate each other for their contributions and achievements. Find out why he believes this is important to him and the community at large.
