10. Birthplace

She was born in Pristina, Kosovo, to Kosovar Albanian parents. Her family moved to England when she was a year old, which was when war broke out in the former Yugoslavia. “We were lucky to get out. The airport was closing down and they weren’t letting anyone leave by that stage. We were on the last flight out. It was really scary for them,” Rita said.
