The content creator revolution has opened the door for many people to pursue their deepest passions while traveling the world. And while it’s not an easy road, one might come across creators like Anita Tebo Kenosi, who pursue their craft despite all odds.
Anita Tebo Kenosi is an aspiring Botswana YouTuber fueled by her youth, dynamism, and passion, among other things. Still, what truly sets her apart is her mission to see the beauty and lessons in life through the most exciting foods and places around the world.
Anita loves learning about the culture and food of every country she visits. Her career started in August 2021 and quickly took off, but unfortunately, the business closed due to COVID-19. Still, because she is a foodie, Kenosi decided to travel the world and try different cuisines and cultures, filming her experiences to showcase the beautiful side of every place she visits.
“My challenges are traveling expenses, canceled delays and currency exchange. Also, checking times and very stressful times and the COVID tests that I have to do every time I go to my next destination,” says Kenosi. All her videos are shot and edited on her iPhone, which is pretty tough for a traveler who can run out of battery at any time. “I like to inspire people of color worldwide to travel and live outside their comfort zone,” she adds.
Happy Muncher Traveler, Kenosi’s YouTube channel, brings the world to your screens with tales of a faraway land and exotic dishes. She still has a long way to go in circling the globe, but so far, Kenya for her is the best place she’s been to. “I fell in love with Kenya, Nairobi. I remember that the capital is a bustling hub of different kinds of people that have come together from all walks of life. However, what I love most about Kenya’s coastal side is the white beaches, swinging palms and cyan seas, the bountiful wildlife inland.”
In Kenya, animals rule and most game reserves and parks have no borders or boundaries. Moreover, Kenya has diverse local traditional food, showcasing their culture and history. Growing up, Anita remembers that her mom would always cook unique and unforgettable cuisines specialized from various countries. Having experienced these special moments motivated her to travel and explore the world. As a result, she constantly dreams of being a chef and owning her restaurant someday. “My aim as a young YouTuber is to lead by example to the youth. I want to inspire them to chase their dreams and remember that it’s possible to be anywhere in the world while doing everything you love,” says the aspiring content creator.
Anita’s channel is about positivity and inspiration. She produces vlogs about beauty and the fantastic food in every country she visits. In one of her YouTube episodes, she shares her experience of availing of an Airbnb apartment service that costs only twenty-five dollars per night.
While traveling with a start-up might not have been as easy, Anita has learned to be resourceful with what she has available. She hopes to, one day, experience exponential growth so she can continue traveling while also being a force of good in the world. As Anita Tebo Kenosi grows her network and social media following, the YouTuber is looking to get the attention of people of all backgrounds and ages. In addition, she desires to share the wonders she discovered through food and unique destinations.
