Jeorkejda "Jori"

Jori lives in Tirana, the capital city of Albania, a country in southeastern Europe and former Soviet republic. With a childhood marked by fun, friends and a supportive family, she now feels compelled to “be an instrument in God’s hand so that others lives will be transformed.” During a time of searching for who she really was in high school, Jori heard about the love of Jesus and His desire to have a relationship with her. She says deciding to follow him was “the best decision I’ve ever made.” After the passing of her father, Jori truly learned that she could trust God in everything.

Jori feels a calling on her life to serve people in need and, as a Developing Global Leader, is pursuing a degree in social work at The University of Tirana. This passion to love people permeates everything she does, including the time she spends weekly walking alongside a group of girls through Young Life. She says, “I’ve always wanted to not just be a part of my community, but to influence it. I believe there are a lot of things that need to be changed and I want to be a part of it. I would like to help the youth in my community to see things differently and be inspired to act differently than before.”
