Kennedi a second grader who has  a fur sister named Emma (she’s a beagle). One world that describes her is BOLD. Bold is where faith and action meet and allow your confidence to shine through.
Singing, dancing, cheer and gymnastics are just a few things she enjoys doing to keep her mom busy. In her down time she likes to read and make slime. Her favorite thing to do with her family is camp. She loves being outside and is always looking for her next adventure.
She is a part of the Junior Fine Arts Club at her school. Her favorite day of the week is Wednesday when she gets to sing with her friends at church in kids choir. On the weekends she loves to find new ways to be in service for others. Some of her favorite places are the Ronald McDonald house and rethreaded.
When she grows up she wants to be a rockstar. She watches American idol with her dad and Carrie Underwood is her all time favorite.
A fun fact about Kennedi is she lost 9 teeth in a month and 3 in one day. It was hard for her to find anything to eat! She also has red hair and blue eyes making up only 1% of the world’s population.
She loves to serve her community. Some of the things she enjoys doing are collecting toys for the Ronald McDonald house at Christmas, and raising money for the Children’s Miracles Network. She also has her very own Flashlight Project where she donates flashlights that have Bible verses and quotes on them to hurricane victims, kids at the Ronald McDonald house and the homeless.
Now that she is your 2019 USA National Jr. Princess, she will promote Crown CARES (Creating a Respectful Environment in Schools) and spread the message of kindness. Her favorite Bible verse is Ephesians 4:32, “Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another as God forgave you.” Kennedi wants everyone to remember you’re never too small to make a difference and it’s cool to be kind!
