Dua Lipa has been named Honorary Ambassador of the Republic of Kosovo.
The Levitating singer was born in London to Kosovo Albanian parents, originally from Pristina.
Dua Lipa often talks about her roots in Kosovo, and on Friday August 5, she received a special medal and a certificate from the hands of President Vjosa Osmani-Sadriu.
“Yesterday afternoon I was awarded the title of Honorary Ambassador of Kosovo by Madam President @vjosa.osmani,” the 26-year-old wrote alongside a slideshow of images from the event. “It is an honor and a privilege to be able to represent my country around the world and to continue my work and my efforts on a global scale to ensure that we leave our mark and make a difference. The youth of Kosovo deserve the right to visa liberalisation, the freedom to travel and to dream big. Thanks.
Dua Lipa also shared an image of a letter that President Vjosa Osmani-Sadriu sent to her.
“Besides being a world-class musician, this which only happens once in a generation, you are also a role model for many girls and women around the world as a sincere and responsible activist. But above all, what you have done for the Kosovar people, raising public awareness of the Republic of Kosovo, is unparalleled and truly invaluable,” the politician stressed in her letter.
