Olá! This is hello is Portuguese, the languge that I will be studying while I spend my junior year in Brazil. Hi, My name is Mackenzie Hardy and I am a student at Leon High School in Tallahassee Florida. In my free time I like to play my upright base or guitar. One of my favorite hobbies is cheerleading. I have also spent many years through middle and high school working with disabled students. I love spending time with my family and friends whenever I can. While I love the city I grew up in (Tallahassee) I am very ready to get out in the world and explore new things. By venturing out into new situation that you may have never been exposed to can be really scary, but also very exciting. For me personally I am so excited to start this new journey. Saying goodbye to a place I know very well and feel very comfortable in for a year is going to be challenging, but the reward outways the risk. One of my favorite quotes is this, “you gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face... do the thing you think you cannot do” - Eleanor Roosevelt Through this experience of foreign exchange I cannot wait to gain strength, courage and confidence. While I am leaving my home in Florida, I can’t wait to make a new one in Brazil.
