Shehaj was born in Albania and moved to the United States when she was five years old; her father played professional soccer in Albania before the family came to the U.S.
She will suit up for Albania against the Macedonian Women's National Team and the Montenegro Women's National Team in exhibitions on May 18th and May 21st, in Montenegro and Albania.
"I really thought that this would be a great experience for me to play in these two exhibitions and it was just something that I really thought that I should take advantage of," said Shehaj, who will be headed to Albania for the games on May 14th.
Albania's women's national football team is a young program and a new member of the Union of European Football Association (UEFA), playing its first international competition against Macedonia on May 5, 2011, when it picked up a 1-0 win. Albania played Macedonia a second time on Nov. 10, 2011, this time winning 4-1.
Shehaj appeared in 13 games for Seton Hall during her freshman campaign and made an immediate impact for the Pirates, ranking second on the team with three assists, one of which came in the first collegiate game of her career, a 3-2 Seton Hall win in double overtime over Fordham.
