Albanian American Success Stories is a multimedia project developed by Albanian Media Group, a public relations and marketing company established in NYC in 1999 and Fadil Berisha Studio, a renowned fashion and celebrity photographer in NYC and supported by an excellent Board of Advisers. The goal of the project is to highlight the successes and achievements of Albanian Americans in all walks of life, the contributions they have made in business, politics, science, education, the arts, etc and to create a network of professionals and mentors to inspire the younger generations. The project features individuals and their accomplishments in a deluxe full color book, a documentary and Gala promoting events. The First Edition of the deluxe publication was published on May 2014, the red carpet Albanian American Success Stories Gala was held on May 3, 2014 in NYC with over 800 in attendance, moderated by Hollywood actress Eliza Dushku and “Dancing with the Stars” Tony Dovolani, benefitting the Kosova American Education Fund. There have been similar promotional events with members of the project who travelled to Kosova and Montenegro, respectively on November 2014 and July 2015, in cooperation with the United States Embassies in Prishtina and Podgorica and the Embassy of Albania in Prishtina.
On October 2015, the project opened the next round of nominations with the Albanian American Success Stories Soiree, held in NYC, attended by over 600 and moderated by actress Masiela Lusha, with a distinct panel of inspirational speakers, benefitting the Albanian Children Fund. We are looking forward to a similar event promoting the project in cooperation with the Albania Embassy in DC, at the the US Capitol with US Senators, Congressmen and other dignitaries in April 2016.
