Before I started volunteering with Code for America as Chicago’s Brigade Captain, I worked in a field office for the Illinois Department of Employment Security. I was hired at the start of the recession to help the state deal with the massive number of people who had been laid off in our city.

As many remember, Kosovo has not always been peaceful. From 1998 to 1999, war ravaged the country. Many people fled and massive human rights abuses occurred. Having unilaterally declared its independence from Serbia in 2008, Kosovo is now a fairly new country and is still not recognized as an official state by the United Nations. This complicated political position hasn’t stopped the community in Kosovo from getting involved in their country’s government though. Quite to the contrary, concerned citizens from all over Kosovo are organizing to make their very young country into what they hope it can be.
