Mykenzi Doran
Hey! I'm Mykenzi Doran, or Mac, a freshman here at the AAJHS! I love taking pictures and writing, so being a part of our school's newspaper is amazing.  I do a lot more than newspaper inside and outside of school. I play the trumpet and clarinet for our school's marching, concert,and jazz bands. I am also learning how to play the flute. I go to a Sunday and Wednesday youth group with some of my closest friends. I am planning to try out for our school's team of indoor majorettes and the tennis team next year! I compete in beauty pageants that take me all around Pennsylvania! I absolutely cannot wait to see what this year brings! My classes are definitely the best. Newspaper, German, music and band have to be my favorites! I love learning how to speak German, how to play the guitar,and it is amazing to be able to learn how to take pictures, caption pictures and even more properly! I live by the anonymous quote, "It's going to be hard, but hard does not mean impossible." It reminds me to not give up on anything and to keep working for my dreams.
