Kanita says that she can be best described as a humanitarian and an expressive, extroverted, positive person. “My interests are mainly focused on art, such as drawing, writing, and going to the theater. I am currently writing my first book of poetry.” She hopes to publish her poetry collection this summer. Kanita aspires to be more like her mother in the future and says, “I’m proud to say that besides her being a professor, [my mom] is also a volunteer, activist, youth worker, and a good person.” Kanita hopes to publish children’s books or studying psychology in the future.
Kanita is an active volunteer in her community. She makes time for weekly visits to the local elderly home, where she spreads joy by playing chess and sports, dancing, and having thoughtful conversations. She’s amazing with young kids as well and regularly volunteers at a kindergarten! Kanita is someone who truly seizes the moment. If she’s not heading out on a ski trip with her family, then she may be playing basketball or volleyball at the gym with her friends. More recently, she has taken up yoga.
Does your family have any pets? Kanita dreams of having a cat to call her own! In addition, during her exchange year, Kanita is eager to experience American holidays, especially Thanksgiving. Her Montenegrin family has started their own Halloween celebrations, and she’s curious to participate in her host family’s traditions!
