In 2021, 23-year-old Rihana Mehana graduated in
the field of law. Currently she is working as a legal officer at Kosovo’s Legal
Services Company. Her hobbies are all related to her work and law. Therefore,
even during her free time she usually takes part in law competitions.
Everything that is related to law and justice makes her happy. Rina was born in
Vushtrria, a small town in the northern part of Kosovo. From a very young age
she was interested to understand more on rights and laws. Her dream is to
establish her own legal firm and she took her first learning steps towards this
dream last year, when she got to be one of many young people to benefit from the
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme.
Rina completed a six months entrepreneurial
exchange in Thessaloniki, Greece. During her time there, Rina was hosted and
mentored by lawyer Alkistis Giogiou in her law firm; this allowed her to get
first-hand experience on how to run a company of that kind. Rina speaks about this
experience as one of those that every new and aspiring entrepreneur must have.
While in Greece Rina learned a lot about the culture, food and people she met
there. She also learned a lot on day to day tasks in a law firm, like how to present and build a case. Her mentor Alkistis Giogiou was very satisfied with Rina and her contribution to
the activities of the law firm. Alkistis shares that Rina had fresh ideas and
innovative proposals that helped them to have a lively exchange of views and
During her exchange in Thessaloniki, Rina had
the chance to meet a wide range of clients take part in a variety of cases and
actually learn how to accomplish day-to-day business tasks. She said that
thanks to this experience she is now more prepared to continue her legal career
and start her own business when she gets back home in Kosovo.
