First things first, Leonita is an amazing person, helping the Albanian community get heard around the world. So kudos to you for that. Second this podcast is super inspiring!. Everyone has a unique way of telling their story and sending a message. The Albanian community is super talented. And deserves to be on the map. Please listen, not everything is about celebrities. Keep it up! ❤️
The kindness host & inspiring space
Leonita, is such a kind human being and open minded which in my books means someone that is curious about the other person and things. That explains why she is also so good that being a podcast host! She reached out to my Instagram pages and I got so curious and kept reading all her posts. Then I got on her podcast and she does such a great job at hosting and creating a psychological safe space-free of judgment for the guess and the listeners as well! This podcast offers a rich account of knowledge and experiences from Albanians that live in U.S.A! For Americans that listen to this podcast will give you a up to date information on Albania and Albanians. Who they are and what they do! Google hasn’t been keeping up with Albanians and Albania in the country and outside of it very well! So turn your BOTA podcast on, grab some good tea (ose çaj mali) and listen up! You will not regret! Enjoy it!
I love the podcast. So smooth and inspiring. Can’t wait for the next episode.
