We asked Zorianna Kit some fun questions to get to know her a little better—she shared the following:
🍽 What person living or dead would you invite to your dream dinner party and why?
I’d invite Ukrainian President Zelensky to my dinner party. They say you should never meet your heroes, but this is one man I’d like to meet and thank for all that he has done as the leader of Ukraine. I want to pepper him with questions to get his thoughts and views on just about every topic imaginable.
🦸♀️ If you could have a superpower, what would it be… and what would your superhero name be?
To be an invisible teleporting fly on the wall. Knowledge is power and I’d love to get into any room anywhere in the world, and observe without being seen, gather all the intel, and use it to better understand people and situations.
🎶 What is your theme song?
“Unstoppable” by Sia—some days I truly feel unstoppable. On days that I don’t, this song reminds me to tap into that feeling and keep going.
❤️ If you had one wish to improve the world, what would you change?
My one wish to improve the world would be that humans would stop abusing the voiceless and the vulnerable. This means animals, children, nature, etc. But in order to do that, people must have empathy, emotional intelligence and mindfulness. I guess that means I wish that humans develop those traits so that their actions lead to kindness, respect, and compassion. I don’t think we stand a chance in hell of achieving this, but I’m doing my part regardless.
🌳 Name three self-care practices you have adopted to treat yourself.
Here is ONE with at least THREE benefits:
One MUST get out in nature. Seeing that the world is bigger than your own little box puts things into perspective and gets you out of your head. Knowing that what’s around you has existed before you, and will exist after you, makes you realize your time here on Earth is finite, so choose wisely on how you want to spend it. Understanding that what’s around you was created by something or someone greater than you is very humbling, and reminds us that we are all here for a greater purpose. So find your WHY and get to it!
