I like your title. Try not to say like and um so much. But overall very good job! GO NEBRASKA! I liked how you said you lefft light little footprints in your childhood and that you left them on your swim team and on your friends. Good Luck in the future!

footprints eh? i love the picture of the beach, your mom is definitely 90's stat. keeping your family values is extremely important and it can be hard to really know who you are in a blur of experiences. the messages you portrayed were perfect and i think its just great that you can begin knowing who you are. even though you were terrible at swimming, you were persistent and tenacious, that really puts impressions, or footprints on people :).

I like the name of your presentation.

Staying true to what you believe is very important.

Traveling all over the world would be such an experience. Learning about different cultures makes someone a better person.

Sports are always a motivation.

Good luck in college!

The ocean is sooo amazing. AH Nebraska boo! (just kidding :)) I like your connection with traveling about getting out of your comfort zone, that's totally correct! It's quite inspiring that you traded being on varsity and toned down your competitive spirit in order to help people, that is so cool! Yeah California! Too bad you guys are so close to the fires, but its so nice there its gonna be fun :)!

I liked how you shared stories about your life.You also have a really good presenting personality because you are very friendly. My only suggestion would be to speak a little louder, and try to avoid "um". Good job!

Anna P2009 said...

Footprints seem to be pretty popular but it's so fitting for you because you have such a California personality!
Boooo Nebraska! If you love them so much why don't you marry them and then move to Nebraska haha!
You got a little bit quiet at the end of your first section but not too much.
You've traveled to so many cool places.
You've left footprints on my heart silly Rabbit! Yeah lab partners!
We all have that picture in our presentation! Way to keep it going!
As I said before you belong in California. You're such a free spirit and the sandy beaches were meant for your footprints (Corny I know)

You are very fortunate to have traveled so much in your life, its neat how other cultures have influenced how you treat the world around you. You have an interesting high school social experience. Have a great time in Cali!

Pat said...

I liked your story about being a Nebraska fans and how that taught you to be yourself. Awesome footprints theme. It was very creative and gave a great visual to see the story of your life. College in Santa Barbara looks really fun. Good luck to you in the future. Good job

I liked how the football thing related to your speech. You are so lucky that have been able to travel all over the world!! That would be an amazing experience. That is a cool legacy to leave behind.

"Stay true to what you believe" "You can't compromise your morals or beliefs just because of what others think" These are really good quotes and it seems like you family influenced you in a very positive way.

Kenzie, I love how you have learned and taken so much away from your family and what they have taught you. And even if you are a Nebraska fan, we can still be friends :). I love how travel has taught you so much; everyone needs to respect others and be thankful for what we have. You were such a fabulous swim team captain! We had such an amazing season together, I don't know what I'm supposed to do without you guys next year! And you are such a little speed demon in your 100 Breaststroke! You are going to do such amazing things in your future, I'm gonna miss you!

KatieM2009 said...

Oh the Corn Huskers.. :) Wow that is really cool how much traveling you have done! I didnt know you that you were so into swim team! That is pretty cool :) I wish you luck at staying your self! I think that is going to be a great experience in Cali! Good luck with everything :)

Don’t take the easy way out theme is great, I know that’s not exactly how you worded it but that’s what I got from it and its fantastic that you have that in your life. I feel your pain on trying to get out of your comfort zone. You did a really great job.

mollyp2010 said...

It's cool that through being a fan, you learned to always support what you believe in. Also, it's great that you are aware of other cultures, and have that respect. I love how you grew so much during swim team, and went by the phrase "just go out and do it". It is so cool that you are not only excited to go to college, but to help out with rebuilding and repairing it as well. you seemed a little nervous, but other than that great job!

shellim2009 said...

I really liked your first picture! It was inspiring. I liked how you included that people also leave footprints on you, it is good to remember. I think it's great that you have been able to travel so much too! Adventure is AWESOME!! :) I agree that you have left footprints on friends because you have definitely left plenty on me! I find it incredibly awesome that you, Anna, Britt, and I all had the same picture in our presentations! WOO!! Good luck at Westmont next year... we better visit each other at least once. Great presentation.

LaurenB2009 said...

It is so cool to see all the places you have already traveled in your life. You really are going out and finding adventure instead of letting it find you. Your College is beautiful!! I'm jealous. Good luck next year!

KaitlanW2009 said...

Footprints! haha
You were so cute as a little kid. :)
I love to travel! I have always wanted to go to England, Peru, and Italy! I like that you talked about appreciating other cultures and such.
Ahh the thousand sucks!
Have fun in California! That will be an amazing experience!

BrittneyW said...

Your a cheerleader? JK but your presenetation is so so cute I love it! I like your picture of you doing butterfly! Sexy!I am so excited for us to go Westmont together its gonna be amazing!

Eric said...

Stay true to what you believe, thats a great quote to live by and an that really makes you be yourself and not to conform to what the society may be doing. Thats so cool you have been able to travel so much. Thats awesome that you stayed down to help other people with the same problems that you had. Good luck next year at Westmont and hopefully you never come face to face with any fires!

AdrienneB2009 said...

Footprints...more!
I have kin in Nebraska...no one caompares to Husker fans except maybe Warriors :)
Travel- appreciate other cultures, appreciate what we have here
I don't think you will be trapped in a bubble, you can do anything you want!
Being a JV captain is a great way to pay it forward!
Grow but still be you!
McKenzie, I'm so glad we had a classes together this year because I got to know you better and I've seen what a great person you are!
Good luck in everything in your future!
