Teuta Azizi is the President of European Medical Students’ Association (EMSA) for the term 2017/2018. She is finishing her medical studies at the University “Hasan Prishtina” in Prishtina, Kosovo.

Ever since she was a child she knew she wanted to become a doctor but also had a big passion for extracurricular activities which broadened her horizons, and so is why she fell in love with EMSA. Her biggest inspiration is her mother; a strong, independent woman always advocating on women’s rights.
