Genta’s talk is the story of a young woman who through hard work, perseverance and passion gave life to a lifelong dream that many believed it impossible. She is now successfully running her own business of building artisanal wooden boats and is now working towards materializing another dream of hers: creating a maritime museum.

Genta was born in Tirana. She studied at the Faculty of Forestry Sciences, at the wood processing branch, specialized in the construction of marine wooden crafts. Currently, she is the administrator of “Artisanal” and director/founder of the project “Life on Boat” which aims to build artisanal boats and to give life to a naval museum in Albania.
