Jumping in With Both Feet
Future Leaders Exchange Program participant from Montenegro jumps a hurdle at school in Kansas
What has Milica learned this year? There’s no challenge she can’t hurdle!

When I came to United States, I explored lots of new sports, and this spring I decided to try track. I have been doing sprints and hurdles, and on April 7, our school organized a senior night where all the seniors were recognized. It was a real honor to walk on the football field with my mom and dad in front of the whole school. Track means a lot to me, and I always try to do my best. I have made so many of my friends there.

It really has become an important part of my life. Being a “Tiger” in the middle of United States is definitely one of the best things that has happened to me.
