Elbonita Kozhani is a graduate of Memorial University in Newfoundland, a dedicated registered nurse and a professional photographer. Her story begins in Kosovo, a small country in the Balkans in which her family had to flee during the war to Canada in the late 90s. Since then, having experienced what it was like to arrive in a place with very little and the need to rely on the community for support, she has continually made it her goal to give back. Elbonita has been an avid volunteer throughout her life with a number of different organizations including Newfound Friends (which she co-founded), Memorial University, the Association For New Canadians and now, most notably, We Are Young! Elbonita has always held a passion for the elderly through her work as a nurse and in the causes she supports.
Being an avid explorer, she has traveled to every continent aside from one. That is why her WAY wish would be to have the opportunity to go to her last remaining continent Antarctica.
