Mentorship Program for Kosovar Students

There is so much potential that students who live in Kosovo have. There is a lot of talent that needs to be nurtured and guided. The lack of access to platforms where they can channel their potential and achieve personal development is a huge barrier to them. But why does this only remain rhetoric? Why are so few Kosovar students achieving their dreams and goals? After racking my brain for an answer, I realized that the root of the problem was not the students themselves, but rather the lack of opportunities that are presented to these students. 

Upon attending the sixth form in the United Kingdom, I have noticed a large amount of differences between the schemes and programs available to students in the UK and in Kosovo. In the UK, we have various career meetings, opportunities to talk to professionals about their careers, we get chances to visit workplaces that we might be interested in, and weekly exposure to various different challenges and schemes. However, I have recently become aware that a large majority of schools in Kosovo do not have these opportunities. Economic difficulties may prove to be barriers for such programs, however, I’ve started my own initiative to give students who are interested in STEM a chance to a virtual network with professionals for free.  

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) are such important career paths for the development of humans but also for the development of a fledgling country like Kosovo. These careers contribute towards the formation of a better society, for example, medicine helps medicate ill patients and technology improves the methods of living by making processes more efficient. After witnessing the lack of support for students in Kosovo to achieve a STEM career, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and create a mentoring opportunity for these students. Kosovar-Albanian students who have an interest in STEM have the opportunity to sign up for a mentoring scheme that partners any interested student with a professional or researcher from their field of choice. After the coordination of dates and times, the student and mentor will be able to participate in one-hour weekly Zoom calls, in which the mentor will be able to explain the pathways for entering their career, and any other relevant information that the student might need. The program is three weeks long and has begun on August 3rd, and any interested students can sign up by clicking the link and filling out the form. (  

I am very lucky to be a part of the Kosovo diaspora in the UK, because I am aware that I have opportunities here which youngsters in Kosovo most likely don’t have. Not only do I have the possibility to encourage positive change in Kosovo by voicing my opinions here in the UK and abroad, but I also have the chance to gain support from a wider variety of people here in the UK and promote awareness of a lack of opportunities for Kosovar students. I aim to use my power to create a positive environment in terms of career development for students in Kosovo because going into STEM requires students to have a lot of knowledge about the subject. Making informed decisions in terms of a career and commitments is also a key aspect to having a successful career, so I hope that this program provides these students with the right amount of knowledge, and to have any questions answered about their future. No student should be left without support, and this is what I hope to promote through the creation of this mentoring program. 


My name is Ideja Bajra, and I am a 16-year-old currently living in the UK. Since the age of 7, I have aspired to become a scientist, and I wish to fulfill that dream by studying biochemistry at university, focusing on the importance of protein structure for the function of proteins in the human body.  

It has always been a particular passion of mine to encourage more youth into STEM, therefore, I have created a non-profit, ‘Based In Science’, that aims to encourage more of the youth in the UK and Kosovo into STEM-related careers. As part of the non-profit, I will be offering free activities, events, and opportunities to students interested in STEM who are from the UK and Kosovo. Aside from organizing a non-profit, I am a student at Drapers’ Academy Sixth Form in the UK, studying Biology, Chemistry, and Physics for A Levels.  

In my spare time, I enjoy reading and writing and am currently writing a book about the contribution of the 21st-century female biochemists to the field of biochemistry, and the major scientific developments that have occurred in the last 50 years. I also co-authored a featured article about BAME women in STEM for the Biochemist magazine, as well as having written a book review for the Biochemist. As the Ambassador for Biochemistry at the Young Scientists’ Journal, I regularly write articles and interviews for the journal, to promote a love for science and to encourage more people into biochemistry careers.

«Мой сосед миллионер» за 25 минут Краткое содержание книги Стэнли

Исследователи предлагают формулу расчета. Это маленькое открытие перевернуло нашу жизнь. Кроме того, он проводил исследования среди богатых людей для семи из десяти ведущих американских корпораций по оказанию финансовых услуг. Авторы совместно провели сотни встреч и семинаров, рассказывая слушателям о том, как найти богатую клиентуру. Это удивительно, автор провёл колоссальную работу, собрал и структурировал информацию, чтобы преподнести её… Бережливость это самое главное для человека, который хочет разбогатеть.

книга мой сосед миллионер

Смысл книги представляет собой классическую самопомощь. Книга интересна, в первую очередь, своими фактическими данными. Суть книги, на мой взгляд, – жизнь миллионеров США с цифрах. Авторы проинтервьюировали огромное количество миллионеров, с тем чтобы узнать, как они живут и каким образом им удалось стать обладателями капитала более 1 миллиона долларов.

Данко, Стэнли: Мой сосед – миллионер. Почему работают одни, а богатеют другие? Секреты изобильной жизни

Финансовая независимость играет важную роль в достижении благополучия. Многие миллионеры на самом деле больше заинтересованы в достижении финансовой независимости, нежели в том, чтобы владеть несколькими автомобилями Rolls-Royce. Люди становятся миллионерами благодаря взвешенному подходу к контролированию бюджета и сохранению своего богатства. Они также умеют мыслить на долгосрочную перспективу и тщательно планировать будущее. Статистика опросов миллионеров интересна.

Книга о том, как 80% миллионеров достигают всего сами, как они живут и какие отношения строят. Особенно понравился тезис “Бережливость, бережливость и еще раз бережливость”. От книги я в полном восторге, после прочтения набралась уверенности открыть малый бизнес. Ежедневно тысячи людей задаются вопросом “почему же я не богат?” Казалось бы, хорошее образование, работа 24/7, стабильный заработок, а денег все нет. И последнее, о чём бы я хотел бы упомянуть, это год издания книги – 1995. Это было время когда интернет ещё не получил такого сильного распространения даже в самих США и поэтому одним из главных источников распространения советов по самопомощи являлись книги и журналы.

Мой сосед – миллионер

Особенно мне понравилась та часть книги, где авторы дают рекомендации относительно воспитания детей в плане… Самый важный для миллионера человек — личный финансист. Поэтому чаще всего миллионеры советуют своим детям изучать финансы или право. Средний возраст американского миллионера — 57 лет.

  • Ее стоит прочесть родителям, которые считают важным наладить с ребенком доверительные и гармоничные отношения.
  • Если вы еще не богаты, но хотите разбогатеть, не покупайте дом, закладная на который более чем вдвое превышает годовой совокупный реализованный доход семьи.
  • Богатые родители осознают тот факт, что женщины обычно зарабатывают меньше мужчин, поэтому им обычно дают больше денег.
  • Она оказала большое влияние на жизни миллионов людей во всем мире, включая Билла Клинтона, Ларри Кинга и Стивена Форбса.

В отличие от того же Карнеги, авторы предлагают не так много советов. Многое из того что пишут авторы многие люди уже давно прочли в интернете или увидели на YouTube. Разумеется, не стоит ждать от книги, что после прочтения читатель сразу станет миллионером. Однако в книге есть несколько интересных советов, которые и сформировали моё отношение к данной работе. Правда нужно признаться, что мне понравилась только первая половина книги, вторая же не пришлась по душе совсем, т.к. Не смотря на продолжение советов, я всё же нашёл их довольно скучными, что, в конечном счете, вылилось в то, что последнюю четверть я уже не стал читать.

Трудно быть бережливым, занимая высокое общественное положение, требующее высокого уровня потребления и, соответственно, более низкого уровня капиталовложений. Дарение денег— главная причина, ведущая к отсутствию продуктивности взрослых детей из богатых семей. Во многих случаях дети миллионеров либо безработные, либо «вечные студенты», которые постоянно где-то учатся. Родители поощряют такое «стремление к учебе», давая таким детям больше денег, чем их братьям и сестрам, которые ходят на работу.

О книге “Мой сосед – миллионер. Томас Дж. Стэнли и Уильям Д. Данко”

Томас Стэнли – исследователь, автор нескольких книг о богатстве, завоевавших награды, включая “Millionaire Women Next Door”, “Marketing to the Affluent” и “Selling to the Affluent”. Финансово зависимые дети получают большую часть семейного наследства. Анастасия Иванова, вы что, ребёнок миллионера?

книга мой сосед миллионер

Во-первых, эта книга излагает системный подход к определению жизненных целей, приоритетов человека. Эти цели у всех разные, но книга помогает понять себя и четко сформулировать жизненные цели. Во-вторых, книга показывает, как достигать этих целей. И в-третьих, книга показывает, как каждый человек может стать лучше.

Книга: Мой сосед — миллионер

Все просто – мы знаем, кто на самом деле богат, а кто просто шикует. А еще мы знаем, как самые обыкновенные люди становятся богатыми. Большинство жителей Америки ничего не знают о богатстве – в его настоящем смысле. Если у вас высокий доход, это не значит, что вы богаты. Если вы тратите подчистую свою огромную зарплату, то вы просто шикарно живете, не более.

В общем, я сосредоточусь только на первой половине книги. Разумеется, семьи с высоким доходом часто богаче, чем семьи со средним и низким доходом. Однако размер дохода объясняет лишь 30% разницы в достатке семей. Куда больше значение имеет распределение дохода и инвестиции. В среднем миллионеры инвестируют почти 20% своего дохода. Дети богатых родителей редко бывают бережливы.

В книге дано много правил, благодаря которым вы можете воплотить задуманное. Это своего рода навигационная карта жизни, используя которую, вы окажетесь на новом уровне. Что нужно, чтобы правильно загадать желания? Как сделать так, чтобы Вселенная была на твоей стороне? Как получить подарки судьбы и сделать свою жизнь ярче и счастливее? Ответы на эти вопросы помогут вам сделать первые шаги на пути к собственными мечтам.

Сделаем пересказы более понятными, грамотными и интересными. Если ваш капитал не менее чем вдвое выше ожидаемого — вы ОНБ (отличный накопитель богатства). Если капитал в два раза меньше — вы ПНБ (плохой накопитель богатства). Уровень образования среди миллионеров достаточно высок.

Отзывы о книге Мой сосед – миллионер

Книга «Мой сосед – миллионер» основана на личных интервью и показывает, что повседневная жизнь многих миллионеров далека от стереотипов о дорогих машинах, особняках и личных самолетах. В то же время эта книга ломает стереотип о том, что стать миллионером трудно – любой человек может узнать не только, как разбогатеть, но и как сохранить это богатство при себе. Что дает им возможность получать доходы в миллионы долларов? Может быть, они обладают каким-то даром притягивать в свою жизнь богатство, а может, они обладают особыми навыками?

Аннотация к книге “Мой сосед – миллионер”

Как миллионеры решают, куда инвестировать деньги? Самые умные из них знают, что самое подходящее решение – это вкладывать деньги в медицинское обслуживание для своей семьи и инвестирование в продуктивное развитие бизнеса. Семья Рул – миллионеры, и их главная цель – достичь финансовой независимости, когда они оба выйдет на пенсию. К тому времени они хотят накопить около 5 миллионов долларов. Ученым-социологам, исследующим привычки богатых людей.

Уверен, как денег не было тогда, нет их и сейчас. Очень занимательные были сами факты о миллионерах. Хорошие примеры, как ненужно баловать детей и как воспитать их успешными людьми. Половина крупнейших как быстро заработать денег мировых корпораций, входящих в рейтинг… Блогер, доула и мама пятерых детей Лиза Мока рассказывает о своем… Такую, чтобы малыш получил хорошее воспитание и главное – был счастлив.

Гораздо чаще богатство – результат всей жизни, проведенной в тяжелом труде, упорстве, планировании и, прежде всего, самодисциплине. Гораздо чаще богатство – результат всей жизни, проведенной в тяжелом труде, упорстве, планировании и, прежде всего, самодисциплине. Очень интересная книга, которая переворачивает с ног на голову общепринятое представление о миллионерах. Человек, ведущий роскошную жизнь, может быть весь в долгах, а скромно живущий по средствам, грамотно инвестирующий – настоящим миллионером, т.к.

Книга обязательна для прочтения каждому кто хочет стать финансово успешным человеком. Получите для себя ответы на важные вопросы, к примеру стоит ли помогать детям деньгами? Это точно, после прочтения Вы наполните свои знания как стать миллионером.

Они живут намного скромнее, чем позволяют средства. Финансовый успех связан с правильным распределением времени, энергии и денег. В значительно меньшей степени он связан с тем, что люди наследуют от своих родителей. Люди, скопившие значительные состояния, обладают несколькими общими чертами. Почему столь многие так интересуются нашей работой? Потому, что мы обнаружили, кто богат на самом деле, а кто – нет.

Хотя многие миллионеры довольно экономны, они тратят огромное количество денег на финансовую поддержку взрослых детей. Это означает, что их дети каждый месяц получают определенное количество денег, кроме того, им оплачиваются расходы на медицину и образование – и так далее. Громкое название книги способно ввести в заблуждение, ведь ее авторы не рассказывают о быстром богатстве, спекулятивных сделках или высоких доходах.

Covid-19: Interview with Dr. Marsela Ceno, Leader of the Association of Albanian Doctors in Germany

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a lot of uncertainty and instability in its management in terms of health, even in the most powerful states, all this due to its extremely rapid and widespread. This rate of spread of infection has taken many developed countries unprepared by not having sufficient capacity in hospitals to treat all infected patients. Given the situation created, we considered it very important to conduct an interview with Mrs. Marsela Ceno who leads the Association of Albanian Doctors in Germany, in order to provide lessons and information on how Germany as a developed country has managed the situation with Covid-19, as well as what we (Kosovo and Albania) should do as countries developing, that we have limited capacity compared to a developed country such as Germany.

KD: Could you tell us about the situation in Germany regarding the Covid-19?

Dr. Marsela Ceno:Well, the situation here in Germany can be said to be under control, of course, the number of those affected is increasing, especially those who return from vacation, but here the health system has shown stability, even in the pursuit of people who are confirmed as affected or in finding persons who have been in contact with the latter. Tracing is a very important process in Germany as well as mass testing, so a map is created of people who are affected, and those who have had contact, then self-isolation is required for 14 days until the onset of symptoms. You should also know that the health system has very large capacities, so even if a significant number of patients go to the family doctor or are in serious health condition and need intensive therapy, the capacities in Germany are very large, so at the moment the situation is under control and the trust that the Germans have in the health system of their state made them experience the situation without the panic that characterized it at the beginning of this pandemic.

KD:As you may know, in Kosovo and Albania, in recent days and weeks there has been an increase in the number of people infected with COVID-19. What do you think are the main reasons for such a thing?

Dr. Marsela Ceno: I think the reasons are several. The pandemic in Europe has reached Italy probably since December, while it became official in March. Even the Balkan countries, here referring to Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania suffered a very heavy lockdown and very large restrictive measures, and this was different from the reality we experienced in Germany. It is true that in Germany most of the public services, schools and kindergartens were closed, but life in a way “continued normally”, so there was no curfew. The person who went to work if he was not obliged to do home office, leaving the house was not forbidden, going to the markets also, so there was no closure of life, complete isolation of life and this made the wave of spread of the disease to be not in the highest numbers, but to be continuous, while in our countries both in Albania and in Kosovo perhaps the lockdown caused the postponement of the spread of the disease in the population. Then with regret, I want to point out a phenomenon, which I have actually followed through the constant contact I have with my family in Tirana, but also through my short visit I had in Albania a month ago, and the awareness of the general population, at least until recent weeks has been very small. There have been people who questioned the existence of this virus, and by not really appreciating the importance of the situation they also showed negligence, either in respecting the distance or also wearing the mask, so it is unfortunate, in a way irresponsible or the easy taking of the situation by a large number of the population, caused that by not observing the necessary measures, the spread of the virus increases in the months or year we are observing. Then we must take into account the regulation of movement between countries, so we who came from Germany to Albania, and also the possibility of movement from the Balkans to European countries, certainly increases the risk of spreading the virus. I say the reasons are multifactorial and I believe the time has come for us to reflect on each of these reasons together so that the pandemic passes as easily as possible.

KD: It has been emphasized many times that citizens are neglecting the danger of the virus, maybe this fact needs research…

Dr. Marsela Ceno: I think those coercive measures are in fact against the instinct of every human being because the main principle of every human being is to be free, free in living daily life. So indeed the figures of the countries we had at the border like Italy with a very large number of deaths per day made it a little easier psychologically for people to accept the lockdown when in fact the figures of the persons affected or those who had lost their lives were not dramatic so it was a precaution which people because of the danger they thought might come easily accepted, but seeing that the level of those affected fortunately remained very low, then people believed that all this great measure of restraint, prevention was probably not necessary, so for this reason, some thought it was just a game or it was a lie or it was a conspiracy theory, so they thought it would not find them which the danger had passed. If now they think it is just a fabricated situation, a situation created for certain purposes, of course, the vigilance decreases, they do not start taking care of themselves, they see no reason why to wear the mask, to maintain physical distance. But I have an appeal for all those who doubt the existence of this virus, to see the persons who are hospitalized. Even young ages who may not have concomitant diseases fail to win the battle against this virus, so it is fortunate for the part of the population who are not to see these sights. People should be aware of respecting the minimum distance of 1.5m to each other, to keep the mask especially in environments where physical distance can not be preserved, large gatherings should also be given up whether on holidays, engagements or even at funerals. We are in a pandemic situation and solidarity between us is the only way to emerge victorious in this situation.

KD: How do you assess the work of state institutions in Kosovo and Albania in pandemic management?

Dr. Marsela Ceno: I do not have very accurate first-hand information to say or I am not in a position to judge the work of institutions. I think that both health systems in Albania and Kosovo have done their best, but now it is felt that the situation is slowly getting out of control.

KD:How do you see the contribution of the diaspora in combating the COVID-19 virus pandemic? Is there room to do more? If so, how can such a thing be done?

Dr. Marsela Ceno: I have mentioned in other interviews also that every evil has a good, and the good of the pandemic caused by Covid-19 was the emergence, the advertising of the Albanian diaspora as an extremely powerful instrument, with dignity and personality. I am referring here to the contribution given by a very large number of Albanian doctors working in Germany, who within the initiative of the association since mid-March 2020, so we just realized that the pandemic or virus had arrived and in Germany, and many Albanians, whether from Albania, Kosovo, or Northern Macedonia, remained confined to Germany, and perhaps lacked a family doctor or, due to a lack of knowledge of the language were unable to find out how they should act like. We set up our own support groups for each German Bundestag, made our telephone numbers and e-mail addresses available, and tried to give as little support as possible to all Albanian citizens who needed our advice. In fact, this is a part of the great contribution of all other Albanian doctors everywhere in the world. You may have followed on almost all TV channels or also in the print and radio media, there have been interviews from all Albanian doctors everywhere who have faced this virus in their countries where they live, and tried to share with their countries of origin a way of strategy in the first place how diseases could be identified, secondly what are the preventive measures, to give an appeal to the Ministry of Health in the way of testing patients and providing therapies, what are the alternatives, what has resulted in effective therapy, ie has been a mobilization or is still ongoing extraordinary life of the diaspora, at least in the prism of Albanian doctors who are in the diaspora, and also we have noticed or heard that in recent months the economic aid that has come from Albanians living in the diaspora to their families has been higher than ever. Then we have the philanthropist, for example, the director of the international firm Ecolog, who has donated free tests for COVID, whether in Kosovo, Northern Macedonia, as well as in Albania, so it is a mobilization and an extraordinary commitment. So I can not say at the moment what there is room for improvement, I have the impression that each of us who is in exile either individually or even organized, we have managed to give the maximum of what we have had the opportunity.

KD:It has often been pointed out by infectologists that in case of an increase in the number of infected, there may be a shortage of anesthesiologists. In this aspect, how much could the diaspora or the doctors there have contributed?

Dr. Marsela Ceno: Yes, this is a very fair remark because all those patients whose condition worsens and need treatment with intensive therapy, ie integrated, to give them enough and necessary oxygen, which they can no longer realize lungs affected by Covid-19, they all end up in intensive therapy and anesthetists are the ones who mainly give the first treatment. What has been done in Germany and so far has been very successful, has been the mobilization of other medical forces which means all doctors regardless of their field of action, so it does not matter if they are internists or surgeons, you should to be trained so that at the moment the situation becomes such, that anesthetists are no longer enough to provide assistance to these patients, to have the opportunity for doctors of other profiles to come to the service of treating these patients. Many universities in Germany have also invited students who are engaged in the treatment of these patients, certainly not in making the main treatment but in providing assistance, such as assistance to the anesthetist. There have also been people of different profiles who have given their free contribution through hospitals, whether for moving beds from one ward to another. Before turning our eyes to diaspora doctors, it is important for me that the medical and non-medical staff present in our countries be trained in such a way that if the situation reaches such a level that the situation gets out of control, then other staff be prepared to provide first aid. Perhaps what can be thought and that would be very good, is that some of the doctors who are in the diaspora come and give their contribution in Kosovo or Albania, but we hope that this point does not reach, and also probably would be a very good alternative for the respective countries then come in contact with countries such as Germany that have very large capacities in intensive care, that cases in which are difficult that can not be treated to the end in Kosovo or Albania then to be sent by special transport and treated in Germany. Germany provided such assistance to France, it also received some of the patients who were in very bad condition from Italy, but these are agreements that must be concluded at the state level between these two countries.

KD: What would you suggest to prevent the spread of the virus in Kosovo and Albania, based on the experience of the country where you live?

Dr. Marsela Ceno: Then I refer to the experience as well as reality or actuality in Germany. Starting from the individual behavior of each of us, i.e. maintaining social distance and also wearing a mask in all those environments where maintaining distance is not possible, i.e. in the supermarket, post office, or restaurants which are not well ventilated. I must also emphasize that wearing a mask is something that has two medals of its own, i.e. if textile masks are used they should be washed occasionally if disposable ones are used they should not be worn for days, but even after 4 hours of use should be changed, because in recent days there are announcements which talk about the complications caused by wearing the disposable mask for a long time. They make up a very favorable terrain through the moisture and warmth that comes from our breath and the placement of fungi for causing inflammatory lung diseases, which lungs are just as at risk as pneumonia caused by Covid-19, so I take the chance in this interview to emphasize this appeal, i.e. textile masks should be washed regularly and those that are disposable should not be used for days, weeks or even months, but should be changed after 4 full hours of use. I also want to appeal to all people, to give up the holiday, the big family gatherings, no matter how great the reason to be happy or even sad. We are in a time of pandemics and therefore we must show solidarity, not only to protect ourselves but also to protect others, especially the ages who are most at risk of this virus are people over the age of 55 or 60, people who are polymorbid, ie suffering from diseases such as diabetes or hypertension, or persons who have other systemic diseases of the immune system. I also want to urge people who feel they may have signs of COVID, cough, or fever to isolate themselves for 14 days and see a doctor only if their condition worsens.

DokuFest offers an exclusive package for Diaspora

In its 19th edition, DokuFest is rolling out for the first time in an online format due to COVID-19. However, despite all challenges, the festival is being successfully organized virtually under the theme “Transmitting”. Same as in previous years, DokuFest has thought about the Albanian diaspora.

“Knowing that a large number of migrants could not come to Kosovo due to the pandemic and given that this year the festival will not be held physically, the organizers in cooperation with the directors of Albanian films have enabled all emigrants access to the online platform of DokuFest”, said Mr. Eroll Bilibani, one of the team, in an interview for “Albinfo”, a diaspora-based media outlet. Although virtually, our festival has created special programs which will be accessible only to our diaspora “, adds Mr. Bilibani for

A competition section with shorts and documentaries made by Albanian filmmakers from around the world, most of them premiering at DokuFest, will be exclusively available for Diaspora in Germany & Switzerland from 7-15 August. Diaspora Package can be accessed via this link, while all other packages and films are accessible at
