What it means to be Albanian living in Diaspora?

During the #OriginAL launching conference, diaspora members that represent different generations and communities shared their personal stories of how they relate to the homeland, in what ways they draw strength from it, and how life is adjusting in the diaspora, or stories on how they contribute back home even from afar. This topic touched on the importance of knowing and honoring your roots – and drawing energy from them.
