2019 Winner

The CSIET 17th Annual Art Cover Contest winner Hana Pirovic, an exchange student from Bosnia and Herzegovina. Hana is currently a 2018-2019 full academic year student in the U.S.A. through AFS Intercultural Programs -USA, a fully CSIET-Certified J-1 and Outbound exchange organization.

A note from the artist: “I was inspired by the new things I learned during my exchange year, all the wonderful people I’ve met, the adventures I had when I learned to step out of my comfort zone. I was motivated by the fact that this year truly changed my life in ways I couldn’t describe with words, but I tried to depict it through art. I believe every person should have the opportunity to do some type of exchange, as it is an irreplaceable, eye-opening experience that is unique to each and every person. Through exchange, we make international connections that are unbreakable, we make unforgettable memories and grow as individuals. I want to spread the word about exchange – living a different lifestyle, experiencing new cultures and teaching others about your own.”
