Meet Kenzie!!! Here’s how Kenzie describes herself:
I am a very fun loving person, I love to just be with my friends and family, it is when I am the happiest! I am very thankful for everything and everyone I have been blessed to have in my life. I am very driven in everything I am involved in, I take pride in a job well done! Sometimes I can be a little hard on myself and put too much on my plate (I’m involved in so many different things)! I am also a Riley kid! I had two open heart surgeries before I was two years old, they saved my life! I can’t wait to go to IU next year!
And she thinks she’s more than just a teenager because…
My mother passed away earlier this year, and it has been very difficult for me and my family. It caused me to look at life a lot differently than before. I realized how fleeting every moment is and that I need to cherish everything and everyone I experience. I also realized that I have an amazing amount people that love and support me through this and I am so very thankful for that!
Leave Kenzie a comment to help her raise money for Riley Children’s Hospital.
