Congrats to Rita Ora!
The 24-year-old “Poison” singer was just named an honorary ambassador for Kosovo and stepped out for a ceremony held at the Kosovo Embassy in London, England on Friday morning (July 10).
“This is amazing. Thank you madam president for this honour. I am so emotional. This is so incredible for me. I will wear this title of honorary ambassador with great pride and responsibility,” Rita shared during her speech. “I didn’t come into this world with any expectations. I didn’t expect to be a role model, least of all being ambassador, but I’m not going to say no. This is beyond what I thought was going to happen.”
Rita continued, “My parents brought us (my elder sister and younger brother) to this country with the hope and the dream that we could get a decent education … which is so important for our hopes and values and for what we want to achieve in our lives. I grew up in Britain, a country that has given me so much for which I am grateful, but I will always have a special place in my heart for my home town and Kosovo.”
Rita‘s parents Vera and Besnik Sahatciu, former British prime minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie, and honorary ambassador Lirim Greicevci were also at the ceremony.
