It is one thing to have a voice when singing but Kanita has a voice to be heard.

Who had the biggest influence on your life?

Other than Christ Himself, my parents have had the biggest influence on my life. I truly believe that lessons are caught more than they are taught, and parents in general have the greatest level of responsibility as stewards over their children’s lives to mold & develop their character. I’ve watched my parents, imperfect but faithful, guide me to a perfect God and a life that would be transformed by knowing Him personally. My father was the man who introduced me to Jesus making me want to know Him for myself. He also modeled passionate servanthood & leadership before me while my mother modeled high standards and a renaissance-like approach to being unafraid to tap into untapped potential; whatever she tries, she puts her entire self into it and does it well. In addition to that, my parents were and still are incredibly hard workers. I constantly aim to be ‘like’ them, in that they are living out their individual passion and purpose. Lastly, they always allowed me to be ‘Kanita’. The transparency I had and still have with them was life-giving to my maturity. They gave me permission to be human, which helped me in my walk with God. Their influence has challenged me to be a better Christian, woman, future wife and mother.

Hip-hop is treading strange waters these days, strange like the lake in the Scottish Highlands. Once thought to be home of the Loch Ness monster, later with much of the scientific community regarding it as a modern day myth. Explaining the sighting includes misidentifications and simply flat out hoaxes! However, until this day people like to carry on the charade despite the facts. This is where we find hip hop, real waters with fake inhabitants, yet we still pretend as if this is good music. We know most rappers are frauds, misidentifying what good rap is.

It is early November and I am on Instagram scrolling through some of my favorite Instagram accounts, and listening to Jackie Hill Perry song the Art of Joy. I kept thinking to myself for our first magazine how can we tie together the idea of “ditching the canvas” to where it is connectable and understandable to the everyday life of millennial’s. We are an ambitious generation, academically savvy and yet broken pieces. Somehow we do not fit quite right. We “act right” for the most part, but that is just an act. At the core we are skeptical and worrisome. What is the one restoring factor for us? Then it hit me, it hit me like the first time I realized oranges were pre-sliced by nature. Like Smalls when he found out the King of Crash and The Great Bambino was the same guy; that the restoring and reviving factor is Joy.

Remember in elementary school competing in the science fair? 90% of the students were making Volcanoes of course including you so you had to add something special to yours. Remember the spelling bees? Spelling the word was not the hardest part, remembering to say the word before and after you spell it is where many great spellers would mess up.
