Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: My name is Mackenzie!
I have a passion for veterinary medicine and just got accepted into college for Biology!
In my free time I play the viola, I serve at a diner, play with my dogs, and study.
I’m a pretty big nerd and love school.
I LOVE music and I have a love for cows, (especially highland cows).
I love farmhouses and would love to be in the country if I could.
What Inspires You Every day? : Honestly, I don’t know. I think I’ve been through so much that I haven’t had much time to learn about myself. I think hope keeps me going. One day I want to have my dream career end meet the love of my life and start a family.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Be nice to everyone because you never know what someone else is going through.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : I believe my ultimate goal would be to find happiness in myself and to accept myself as well as learn to trust and find the right people to be with.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : Well school was insane. But I did it.
The main thing I learned from 2021 is to not let people control you. I learned through the last few months of 2020 and early 2021 that some people won’t treat you right, and I should know my worth. The pandemic has made school so much different, but I think it made me realize how much I was draining myself. In my now last year of high school, I stopped doing the things that I was expected to do because it’s all I’ve ever done. I quit being a goalkeeper after 8 years, and I stopped playing in my schools musical this year. The past months have been a whirlwind of events and I really needed a break… and I think the pandemic made me realize that.
What is a message you would like to give others? : Try to put yourself in other peoples shoes. And don’t try to be right, try to listen fully and even though you may not have experienced it, have an open mind and try to understand someone’s point of view, even if you don’t agree with it.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I think I’ve done well. I’m trying my best and I have pushed myself to keep going. Even if mentally I struggle tremendously, I still push myself to find happiness and help others and I’m actively learning to help myself.
