Mackenzie Carter - 4th Runner-Up

People's Choice Award

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
The fall! It represents so many happy things, I love rainy weather! It brings an excuse to cuddle up to the fire reading and drinking hot chocolate. Thanksgiving comes in fall which is a favorite holiday spent with family...AND the start of volleyball season, my passion.

What according to you is a true friend?
Not many people know that I lived in Ensenada, Mexico in the 5th grade. That period of time fostered the love I have for serving others and Christ as well as my love of languages.

How do you handle criticism?
My hometown is Bakersfield but Im from McFarland, California. It is the epitome of a small farming town where I grew up on an almond orchard; our closest neighbors a mile away. I am a "cowgirl at heart" and have been raised with constant love from this close knit town.

When was the last time you tried something new?
My worst habit and unfortunately a favorite is coffee! This is a new habit that I owe to my friend Liz. After studying for finals in December, Her thoughtfulness in a single cup of coffee sparked my love for it and now its a morning ritual!

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I would travel to Spain! I absolutely love the Spanish language and due to my Spanish 4AP class this semester, studying culture, strength of their traditions, and love for family (a big part of my family as well) in Spain, makes me want to travel there even more.
