Pranvera Hyseni is the Founder and Director of the Astronomy Outreach of Kosovo program.

Hyseni knew she wanted to become an astronomer at a young age. She explains, "Growing up, I figured that we didn't have any astronomers or observatories, or departments that I could study astronomy, and for me, that was somehow depressing, a lot, because I wanted to become an astronomer, and knowing that I couldn't, it wasn't very easy to accept I never actually accepted it." 

Hyseni went on to create Astronomy Outreach of Kosovo, and is responsible for the future plans to have the first observatory built in her country.
